The University of Manitoba has received a $5 million gift for a new building for electrical engineering students and faculty.
The donation by alumnus Stanley Pauley and his wife Dorothy will go to the Faculty of Engineering, where construction will begin in late 2017.
The gift adds to the U of M’s Front and Centre campaign. The Pauleys donated $4.19 million in 2012 to renovate and refurbish existing laboratories to create the Stanley Pauley Centre, a state-of-the-art electrical engineering research and teaching facility.
Demolition is planned for the Music Annex building, which will make room for the new facility. The building will contain graduate and undergraduate laboratories, faculty offices, and graduate student study space.
