The Centennial Centre for Interdisciplinary Science was officially opened Sept. 23.
The University of Alberta has officially opened the Centennial Centre for Interdisciplinary Science, a state-of-the-art 50,000-square-metre facility specifically designed to foster an interdisciplinary approach to research, teaching and discovery.
The CCIS provides more than 6,000 undergraduate science students with unprecedented access to laboratories and world-class professors through a design that promotes interdisciplinary science. The building pulls together five research groups in the same facility with scientists in the fields of nanostructures and new materials, integrated earth landscape management, chemical biology and proteomics, planetary dynamics and resources geosciences, which will now be researching, innovating and discovering side-by-side.
“This is a new day for collaborative, scientific research and this is its new home,” said Gregory Taylor, dean of the Faculty of Science at the opening Sept. 23. “The Centennial Centre for Interdisciplinary Science solidifies the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Science as one of the top faculties of its kind in the country, if not the world.”
The new science building provides space for the increase in the number of students and researchers resulting from a growth in the number of science programs. Its construction creates 2,200 new lecture theatre seats, 648 lab seats and 230 computing lab seats. There is also research space for 1,100 researchers.
