The Engineering and Math project will construct two new buildings totaling 206,136 square feet. The facilities will accommodate 35 new faculty members and 310 new graduate students and provide research space for work in bio-chemical and bio-processing, tissue engineering, green energy, environmental systems, computational intelligence, health informatics, and new media technologies. In addition, three professional masters teaching spaces, three 80-seat classrooms and two 30-seat classrooms will alleviate pressure on math teaching space campus-wide.
The budget for this project is $55.4 million, with federal and provincial contributions of $18.25 million and $17.75 million respectively. Additional funding from UW's Engineering and Mathematics faculties totals $12 million as well as $10 million committed from the faculty of Engineering through the Provincial Graduate Growth funding.
