Ground Breakers

sfu technology & science complex

In late 2002, the government of British Columbia announced it would invest $23 million to construct a new technology & science centre at SFU's Burnaby campus. The complex will be built south of the existing applied sciences building. When it opens in 2005, it will provide enough space to double the number of students majoring in computing and engineering science — two of the most popular and demanding programs at SFU. Currently, there are more than 1,300 undergraduate students majoring in these programs.

Under its Double the Opportunity program, the government of British Columbia aims to double the number of students graduating each year in computer science, and electrical and computer engineering. The new 9,000-square-metre Technology and Science Complex/Module I — a "green" building boasting environmentally responsible design features and public spaces that encourage social interaction — promises to establish SFU as Canada's leading university in applied sciences education and research.
