Topic type:

The School of Engineering was the second area of the University to relocate to the new site at Ilam. While building work continued, the School was sufficiently completed to be used for lecturing space by February 1960. The official opening took place in October 1961 and was the first new building for the University for over a quarter of a century.

The school included the iconic 'mushroom building"  at the entrance to Canterbury University's School of Engineering.  The building was demolished in 2011 following the Canterbury earthquakes.
