Canterbury Engineering the Future (CETF)

Since 2014, the CETF project has been rebuilding or completely refurbishing every wing of the engineering precinct, including construction of a new Structural Engineering Laboratory, to ensure our students experience the most modern educational facilities available.

The Electrical and Computer Engineering wing and the Chemical and Process Engineering wing were completed in 2016 and the Engineering Core, at the heart of the precinct, welcomed its first students at the start of 2017.

The Core introduces a dynamic new element where staff and students can learn and socialise together in a modern environment designed to promote learning and research collaborations. It encourages the sort of interactions between different engineering departments and between undergraduate and postgraduate students that inspire innovative solutions.

When the entire precinct is completed this year, it will provide UC students with some of the best facilities for teaching, learning and research in the southern hemisphere for decades to come.
