University opens its newest building

As one of Canada’s newest research universities, and as a vibrant centre of teaching, research and innovation, the university proudly opened our newest building, the Software and Informatics Research Centre (SIRC), last month.

The Software and Informatics Research Centre (SIRC) accommodates the university’s need for new spaces for research, study and future active learning.

The four-storey building houses:

• Flexible learning spaces featuring multiple seating configurations, room divisibility and the newest audio-visual technology.

• Approximately 280 square metres of student study space.

• Engineering labs in electronics, mechatronics, and robotics as well as a design/makerspace featuring 3D printers, and soldering and electronics stations.

There are many ways for individuals, companies and foundations to support the work of our students and researchers in this new facility.  Find out how you can support SIRC.
