Vision 2010 includes a realistic budget, with funding committed from the university, the Faculty of Engineering, and the departments. New research grants and contracts, new international students, and the province’s support for new graduate students will provide further support.
But we know that making Vision 2010 a reality will require significant philanthropic support. Through the Vision 2010 Campaign, we will seek out that support – reaching out to faculty and staff, students and alumni, partners and friends.
Our goal is to raise $120 million: $30 million for research chairs, $23 million for graduate scholarships, and $5.5 million to endow two special programs. The balance, $61.5 million, will go towards infrastructure: three new engineering buildings, the nanotechnology wing of the Quantum/Nano Centre, and the graduate wing for the architecture building.
