Canterbury Engineering the Future (CETF)

The CETF project either rebuilt or completely refurbished every wing of the engineering precinct and included the construction of a new Structural Engineering Laboratory, ensuring 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.

The precinct now provides UC students with some of the best facilities for teaching, learning and research in the southern hemisphere, and will do so for decades to come.
