The Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship The Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CEIE) will set a new standard for engineering education and research, strengthening our Faculty’s position as the premier engineering school in Canada and one of the world’s best. Located at the heart of U of T’s St. George campus, the CEIE will inspire new levels of cross-disciplinary collaboration and experiential learning that will accelerate innovation and prepare the next generation of global engineering leaders to address the world’s greatest challenges. Thanks to the remarkable commitment and vision of our U of T Engineering community, as well as funding from the Ontario government, the CEIE will open in 2017, launching an extraordinary new era for our Faculty.

“By incorporating innovation in engineering education and smart building design, the CEIE will be one of the finest research and teaching environments of any engineering school in the world.”

Sustainability

“This state-of-the-art, energy-efficient building will not only provide 10 per cent more space, but also offer exciting new opportunities for creative invention and a new level of interdisciplinary collaboration.”

– Meric S. Gertler, President, University of Toronto

The CEIE will boast innovative sustainable design features that will make it one of the most energy-efficient buildings at U of T. Illustrated in the Floor-by-Floor Tour, the skylights will draw daylight deep into the building, reducing the need for artificial lighting, and rooftop photovoltaic cells will harness the sun’s energy to generate 70 kWh of electricity each year. Advanced air delivery systems (shown on the diagram with blue and red arrows) and passive solar shading will help reduce heating and cooling costs, and rainwater will be collected for landscape irrigation. The CEIE will meet or exceed many of the Tier 2 Toronto Green Standard performance measures for sustainable site and building design.
