Canada and British Columbia invest in new energy systems engineering building at Simon Fraser University
The Government of Canada today announced a $90-million investment in a new energy systems engineering building at Simon Fraser University.
The funding will support the construction of a new building for degree programs in energy systems and environmental engineering. The five-storey, 15,000-square-metre building will allow the university to expand its research in the energy, hydrogen, electricity and liquefied natural gas sectors, which will help current and future generations of young people train for the good, well-paying jobs of the future.
The building will also accommodate the Mechatronics Systems Engineering program, which combines the fields of mechanical, electrical and software engineering with entrepreneurship and business. The new space will be dedicated to students commercializing their research through the Technology Entrepreneurship program.
