Macdonald Engineering Building


When the Arts Building was becoming overcrowded in the 1890's as enrolment climbed, new faculties were added to the University Campus. The Applied Science Faculty, (which was the term used for Engineering at that time), relocated in 1893 to two new buildings. One was donated by Thomas Workman and the other by Sir William Macdonald, one of McGill's most generous benefactors.
