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, welcomed its first students through the doors at the beginning of 2017.

As a new build, the wing 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.

Multi-purpose rooms are incorporated alongside a research laboratory, centrally located technician rooms for hands-on guidance and safety, and a briefing area at the entrance where a flexible teaching space encourages collaborative work.

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