The University of Windsor and other postsecondary institutions will benefit from a recent $3.6B investment into electric vehicle manufacturing in Ontario from Stellantis. UWindsor’s Automotive Research and Development Centre (ARDC) will expand to house a new 100,000-square-foot battery research facility by 2023, which will provide a space to develop and test electrified propulsion systems. The battery lab will also provide UWindsor and St Clair College students with opportunities and jobs when they graduate. “As an academic institution, we will be training the next generation of automotive engineers with a focus on electrification and, given the recent announcement, our graduates will now be able to find meaningful employment within the Windsor-Essex region,” said UWindsor Dean of Engineering Bill Van Heyst.
