SITUATED IN THE NEW INNOVATION AND WELLNESS CENTRE, THE INNOVATION COMMONS WILL BE A DEDICATED SPACE FOR ENGINEERING TEACHING, RESEARCH AND INNOVATION. PART OF THE REVITALIZATION OF THE PREVIOUS PHYSICAL EDUCATION CENTRE, THIS LEADING EDGE FACILITY WILL BE THE HEART OF THE QUEEN’S ENGINEERING COMMUNITY.
Featuring integrated research clusters from across the faculty, the Innovation Commons will also include spaces dedicated to Bioengineering, Innovation and Design. The Innovation Commons will be the centre of the Queen’s Engineering community, combining new undergraduate facilities, laboratories and design studios to bring together professors, undergraduate and graduate students from a number of faculties to collaborate in a dynamic and academic social environment.
The Queen’s Innovation Commons will dramatically enhance our innovation programming and research across all disciplines to attract the best students and finest faculty. As such, this initiative represents an unprecedented and transformational leap toward the future of engineering in this century.
