Wind tunnel removal – Mechanical Engineering Wing

As part of the Mechanical Engineering decant, the low speed wind tunnel will be removed from the wing during the week commencing 3 August 2015. The area occupied by the wind tunnels and the central corridor will become a construction zone during this time as sections of the tunnel are moved across the corridor and into the main workshop.

During this week, there will be no access for staff or students to the wind tunnel area, and the corridor will be blocked. Signage indicating an alternative pedestrian route will be in place.

Any questions or concerns around this work should be addressed to Scott Amies (ext 7237) or Rodney Elliot (ext 7259)

Book Giveaway – 7 August!

The library is organising book giveaways during 2015, giving you the opportunity to obtain withdrawn books for your personal collection. The next giveaway is Friday 7 August, 12.15pm-3pm, Level 3, north side, Central Library, Puaka-James Hight building.

The new owner is the first person who wants the book. Please bring your own bags to take the books away.

 A book is in the giveaway because:

  • It no longer meets the demands of the course or research it was purchased for; or
  • Fewer copies of the title are now required; or
  • It is damaged and has been replaced; or
  • It was donated but does not meet the “in scope” criteria for Learning, Teaching and Research at UC.
