The Centre for Engineering Innovation will house the University of Windsor's Faculty of Engineering, with an impact that will reverberate off campus.
The 300,000-sq. ft. facility, slated for the southwest corner of Wyandotte Street and California Avenue at a cost estimated at $112 million, will focus on research and development and will include an Industrial Courtyard that will team the University, business and other partners in an environment to facilitate a direct connection between education, research, and industrial innovation.
"This is a major step for the University of Windsor and for the Windsor-Essex region," says UWindsor President Alan Wildeman. "The Centre for Engineering Innovation will provide our students with an extraordinary facility within which to learn and to see engineering in action. It will provide laboratories and research facilities where emerging priorities such as environmental sustainability, alternative energy, nanostructure, lighter materials, and more efficient manufacturing systems can be addressed."
