The Surrey campus will add another 5,000 square metres of classrooms and science and research labs thanks to a $10-million Knowledge Infrastructure Program grant from the provincial and federal governments. Construction will be completed by 2011.

"The grant is a vital step in the campus’ growth," says Joanne Curry, executive director of the Surrey campus. "Now we can accelerate research and better support undergraduate, graduate and continuing education students in the high-demand programs."

The new space will be used for a variety of programs, including biology, chemistry, health sciences, mechatronics and criminology, and will have new labs for visual analytics, mechatronics and cybercrime. Future research expansion will target health and energy engineering.

More than 5,300 students attended classes at the Surrey campus during the fall semester. That number is expected to double over the next 10 years with further investment in facilities and student spaces.
