Technical Services

Our students and staff benefit from the expertise and dedication of a large team of technical specialists. They keep our state-of-the art equipment in tip-top shape, help us put theory into practice and ensure our teaching and research is industry-relevant.

Cathedral Square facilities

Our human/technology interface hub. The team supports a visual imaging lab and a hackspace to encourage student experimentation and collaboration.

Queen's Building facilities

A large team of specialists look after 45 spaces such as the supersonic wind tunnel, geomechanics area, CUBESAT laboratory and nanoengineering suite. 

Workshops and fabrication

The team that makes possible the design and creation of mechanical, electrical, electronic, electromechanical assemblies, components and hardware. 

Two researchers using lab equipment Teaching and development

Educators and apprentice technical staff teach and assist in laboratories and classes. They help students with projects and provide ad-hoc support for teaching and research.
