October 21, 2013

The University of Calgary has received the largest single corporate donation in its history, with a $7 million gift to the Schulich School of Engineering from Canadian Natural Resources Limited. “The gift will enable the school to provide exceptional learning experiences for students and to create an environment in which engineering experts thrive, leading to groundbreaking and widely recognized research,” says a uCalgary news release. A newly-named Canadian Natural Resources Limited Engineering Complex will serve as a hub for teaching, learning and research within the Schulich School of Engineering, providing tools and resources for the education of future engineers. The expansion of the Schulich School of Engineering, which will allow the school to increase its capacity by at least 400 additional undergraduate and graduate students, also received $142.5 million in funding from the Alberta government this month. uCalgary Today
