Facilities and Equipment

UC’s Engineering Precinct is the result of the CETF (Canterbury Engineering the Future) project, a $162 million investment in new state-of-the-arts facilities for the Faculty of Engineering. 

A new Structural Engineering Lab (SEL) was opened in April 2016, the first project to be completed.

The Electrical and Computer Engineering wing and the Chemical and Process Engineering wing were completed in 2016.

In 2018, the Civil and Natural Resources Engineering and Mechanical Engineering lab wings were completed. 

The Engineering Core, at the heart of the precinct, welcomed its first students at the start of 2017.  The Core is a hub for staff and students, encouraging interactions between disciplines, and promoting learning and research collaborations in a modern environment.

The entire Engineering Precinct provides UC students with some of the best facilities for teaching, learning and research in the southern hemisphere for decades to come.
