How the Price Faculty of Engineering is adapting labs during COVID-19
The Price Faculty of Engineering continues to find new, innovative ways to connect students with laboratories this fall as we exercise remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Engineering and Information Technology Complex
The original section of the Engineering and Information Technology Complex was completed in 1913, with additions coming in 1949, 1954, 1962 and 1967. A major 2005 renovation revitalized the space, which is now home to many of the Price Faculty of Engineering's teaching and research facilities.
Nano Systems Fabrication Laboratory
Sometimes called "the cleanest room on campus," the Nano Systems Fabrication Laboratory is the only facility of its kind in Manitoba and one of only a handful in Canada. With over $4 million of equipment it’s a central facility in the university’s material research network.
Stanley Pauley Engineering Building
This 46,000-square-foot building adjacent to the Engineering and Information Technology Complex expands lab and student-support facilities across engineering disciplines.
The building houses a wide complement of engineering related programs and laboratories, including the Price Innovation and Prototyping Centre used by student design teams, Co-operative education space and the Internationally-Educated Engineers Qualificationprogram.
Stanley Pauley Centre
The recently refurbished Stanley Pauley Centre is devoted to education and research associated with electrical power conversion.The Centre houses three major laboratories: the Intelligent Power Grid Laboratory, the Electric Vehicles Laboratory and the McMath High Voltage Laboratory.
CAD and FAB Labs
The Tetra Tech CAD Technology Centre and the Digital Fabrication Laboratory are complementary design spaces that allow students to develop a hands-on understanding of how to conceptualize, design, prototype and communicate design ideas.
The Engineering Library has reopened after refurbishment. Modern updates include a variety of soft seating, tables, charging towers and moveable whiteboards to accommodate individual and group study needs.
The Price Faculty of Engineering is taking the steps necessary to eliminate or reduce the risks related to our staff and students working alone. In part this is accomplished through education and awareness, but also through assessment of our personal situations.
You need to take reasonable care to protect yourself and others. For example, if you are working in an office, a library area or a computer lab with others present and they leave, you may be the only person left. Alert your peers when you leave and, if alone, you should take whatever steps are necessary to ensure you are safe. That may mean leaving the area or alerting a friend or family member you intend to stay and work but will be leaving at a particular time. If transiting from one university location to another alone or after hours, consider contacting Campus Safewalk (204-474-9312, available 24/7) to be accompanied by security personnel.
The Price Faculty of Engineering has identified areas where students and staff may be at risk if working alone. These areas are clearly identified by entrance signage indicating “Do Not Work Alone without prior authorization.” Authorization can be obtained by completing theAuthorization for Working Alone (PDF) form and submitting it to firstname.lastname@example.org complete with signatures from the individual responsible for the area in which you will be working alone and your immediate supervisor.
