Live Building / Integrated Learning Centre
Beamish-Munro Hall - home of the Integrated Learning Centre
The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science is pleased to present the Integrated Learning Centre, a unique facility designed to support new and exciting initiatives in undergraduate engineering.
Integrated Learning at Queen's is the name for an ongoing initiative of curriculum development that seeks to:
- Provide students with the skills (communications, lifelong learning, teamwork) and attitudes (sensitivity to social, environmental and economic issues) which they need to elevate theory to practice
- Increase the emphasis on active learning by the student, with the aim of increasing the depth of learning, the retention of understanding, and the development of learning skills
- Provide students with an improved understanding of the role of other engineering disciplines and, indeed, of the role of professionals outside of engineering
