2019 MEET Capstone Showcase

Join us at our showcase of our Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Technology (MEET) Capstone students. Capstone projects give final year students the chance to apply all their knowledge and skills to create a practical applied solution to a real industry problem. See what the next generation of Sheridan’s engineering technology graduates is developing and meet with the project teams, their industry partners and their professors.

Awarding Student Excellence: Applied Chemical and Environmental Science Workshop

The School of Applied Chemical and Environmental Sciences held a special Chemical workshop over reading week that was a huge success!

Faculty-nominated students were provided with an opportunity to attend a three-hour long workshop on the application of an ATR-FTIR spectrometer in inorganic chemistry and the importance of a mass balance in chemical processes. The students got to test a variety of carbonates, nitrates and chlorides, and monitor the changes of one given compound as it was heated. The students learned new things and the mass balances checked out. A great experience for all!

Thanks to everyone who made this workshop happen.

Exciting Travel Opportunity for a FAST Student Researcher

A wonderful opportunity has arisen for Sheridan student, Mark Beauchamp, of the Mobile Computing Program in the School of Applied Computing.

As a student researcher with the Centre for Mobile Innovation (CMI) doing applied research with award-winning and cutting-edge industry partner Cloud DX, Mark has been asked to demonstrate the integration of various technologies during Cloud DX’s presentation at the Yukon Medical Association’s Virtual Care Summit this coming weekend.

We look forward to hearing about Mark's experience and are proud that he will be representing Sheridan's School of Applied Computing in the Yukon.

Good luck, Mark!
