The donation from Doug Bergeron, who graduated from York University with a degree in Computer Science, and his wife Sandra is the largest ever by an alumnus.
In recognition of this exceptional and continued support from the Bergeron family, the School’s new home will be named the Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence.
The 167,500 sq. ft., five-storey Bergeron Centre for Engineering Excellence won’t offer your typical engineering school experience. The space has been designed to ‘flip the classroom’ so that students will come to campus for active learning sessions with professors, classmates and mentors.
We want Canada’s most promising engineers and entrepreneurs to thrive, to innovate, and to eventually change the world.
This is a terrific endorsement of what we are doing, which is quite simply to transform engineering education.
it will be used to encourage the type of entrepreneurial spirit that Doug, one of our own graduates, has demonstrated so often as a business leader.
