YorkU opens Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence

April 12, 2016

York University has officially opened the Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence. The centre, which has no lecture halls, will house many of YorkU’s engineering programs, as well as the Bergeron Entrepreneurs in Science & Technology program. The centre aims to improve the learning experience for students of the Lassonde School of Engineering by fostering creativity and emphasizing a hands-on approach to learning. “We want our students to think ‘outside the book’ by making things, testing prototypes, solving problems together and learning by doing,” says Janusz Kozinski, Dean of the Lassonde School of Engineering, “that’s the kind of creative training that will prepare them to solve the world’s complex challenges and to lead Canada’s economic future.” YorkU | ON
