Computer Science/Computer Centre
With the need to rationalise and consolidate facilities and operations within the departments, the Capital Projects Office together with relevant Departmental heads undertook a survey which established the need for re-organisation of available space plus provision of additional accommodation.
Following pre-planning, works comenced August 1999 involving North Wing of Sir Robert Kane Building with 4th floor allocated to Computer Centre while Computer Science would occupy 3rd floor.
On the 3rd floor, Computer Science were provided with necessary administration accommodation while teaching laboratories would be provided through provision of a two storey pre-fabricated building directly north of Kane Building where two teaching labs with necessary ancillary rooms are available. To complete requirements for Computer Science a further two teaching labs were included in the project and these are provided on second and fourth floors of Block E, located to west of pedesrian bridge over Gaol Walk.
The Computer Centre upgrading resulted in the fourth floor being re-modelled to facilitate new administrative offices, seminar rooms, hub rooms together with necessary ancillary rooms.
