Engineering lab at SFU Surrey named after Kaiser Foundation

SURREY — An engineering lab at SFU Surrey that’s used to teach students about sustainability and power generation has been named after the Kaiser Foundation.

The foundation has been a long-time supporter of SFU’s Faculty of Applied Sciences and, through Alpha Group, has donated more than $700,000 to the university over the past 17 years.

Roughly $300,000 of that total went directly to the lab that will now take Kaiser’s name.

SFU’s Surrey campus played host to a naming ceremony on Tuesday (April 14), and the lab will now be known as the Kaiser Foundation for Higher Education Laboratory.

Later, professors offered tours showcasing teaching and research initiatives that are underway.

The lab houses state-of-the-art power electronics equipment that provides students with hands-on experience as they study technologies related to power generation, electronics, circuits and embedded systems.
