Hatch Centre Steering Committee Student Representative

The Hatch Centre Steering Committee is intended to function during the planning, design and construction of the building. The Hatch Centre Steering Committee began meeting in the start of 2013 and meets over the summers. After the building has been completed, the steering committee will no longer be needed. The steering committee is responsible for the following:

  1. Develop and approve overall scope and user requirements for the building within the approved budget.
  2. Consolidate input from various sources concerning sustainability features and prioritize which features are to be incorporated into the actual building.
  3. Provide input and advice to the Project Architect and Design Consultants.
  4. Receive and consider input from the Experiential Learning Task Force concerning the experiential learning activities for which space and facilities are required.

There will be two students who will sit on the steering committee alongside the MES President, the Dean of Engineering, and various Faculty Members. There is currently one opening for a Student Representative on the Hatch Centre Steering Committee.

Hatch Centre Steering Committee Student Representatives will co-chair the Hatch Centre User-group Committee meetings in which any MES member can attend to provide input on the building. In this way the Student Representatives will lesion input from the general MES membership to the Hatch Centre Steering Committee. The Student Representatives’ terms will continue indefinitely until building completion.

The Student Representatives  have to be able to attend meetings multiple times per month and be able to attend most summer meetings via teleconferencing if not able to attend in person.

If you have any further questions, comments or concerns, please contact Mitchell Kurnell at
