Electrical and Computer Engineering Wing - Learning Resources - University of Canterbury - New Zealand

Chemical and Process Engineering Wing

The new Chemical and Process Engineering (CAPE) Wing, which replaces the old Denham building, was handed back the the University at beginning of December 2016.

This completely rebuilt, state-of-the-art building provides a safe, transparent and inclusive learning environment, full of natural light, with a social heart and a strong academic curriculum that continues to build on the strengths of an already well-established facility.

It incorporates multi-purpose rooms, a research laboratory, centrally located technician rooms for hands-on guidance and safety, and a briefing area at the entrance for use as a flexible teaching space to encourage collaborative work.

Visual connections between the different laboratories, workshops and social areas provide unique opportunities to showcase activities occurring within the wing.
