Carleton breaks ground on experiential learning facility

November 3, 2020
Carleton University has broken ground on its new Engineering Design Centre. The centre will provide dedicated space for undergraduate students as they collaborate on fourth-year Capstone design projects. The three-storey, 25,000-square-foot facility will feature a maker space, design studios, workshop bays, a central atrium, and meeting and lounge space. “The best learning environments inherently combine both theory and practice,” said Faculty of Engineering and Design Dean Larry Kostiuk. “By investing in this newly-established space for hands-on education, we look to expand Carleton’s longstanding commitment to experiential learning.” The building is expected to open its doors in Fall 2021.
