uCalgary receives $142.5 million from Alberta for engineering expansion

October 9, 2013

The University of Calgary has received $142.5 million from the Alberta government for the expansion and renovation of the Schulich School of Engineering. The $158.3-million expansion will allow the school to increase its capacity by at least 400 additional undergraduate and graduate students, helping meet industry needs and allowing students to apply research to “address societal challenges, and drive research and innovation that will give Alberta a competitive edge.” The remaining $15.8 million needed for the project is provided by the Engineering Leaders campaign, which has raised $54.3 million so far. Construction will begin immediately and the building will open in 2016. uCalgary News Release
