2017 Holiday Toy Drive

Thanks to all our students, faculty and staff for their generous donations to the Toys 4 Tots campaign. Peel Regional Police were at Davis campus on Wednesday, December 20th to collect an electric car worth of toys. This was Sheridan's 4th year involved in collecting for the Toys 4 Tots campaign.

Special thanks to the Sheridan Engineering Club and Tony Orlando for getting the Electric car into the Davis main foyer and providing collection support, the Police Foundations students for helping to transport the gifts to the cruiser and the Faculty of Applied Science and Technology and Philip Stubbs for all of the initiative and support for this worthy initiative.

Happy holidays!

Architecture Week 2017

Architecture Week was a huge success! Thanks to the 125 Arch Tech student participants who engaged and enjoyed, the faculty who gave their time, energy and enthusiasm and the out-of-the-box thinking that was evident throughout the week's activities.

With a 36’ long 1:1 piece resulting from the detailing exercise, the Sierpinski Tetrahedron Math extravaganza, a studio charrette, Thea Kurdi’s lecture ‘Who are we designing for’, the design of an 8’x8’x10’high Story Pod, the (almost) famous Historic walking tour of Toronto and ‘busting down the roof’ where 52 roof structure models were built to be busted, it was a week to remember!

Thanks to everyone who contributed to Arch Tech week 2017! It was a success because of all of you!

Electric Vehicle Challenge

Congratulations to the Mechanical Engineering students who participated in the Waterloo Electric Vehicle Challenge on May 27th. Not only is Sheridan pioneering college level involvement in this challenge being the second College to compete, but they took first for the 24v College-level race, and placed 8th overall.

Already thinking of improvements, Electronics and Computer Engineering students are looking at putting an Arduino and a Raspberry Pi in place of a smaller, more efficient motor.

Special thanks to Lawrence Porter, Electronics Engineering Technician, for his help in pulling the Electrical Vehicle Challenge together. And congratulations to everyone who was involved in this awesome undertaking!

Skills Ontario Competition 2017

Congratulations to all Sheridan participants at the 2017 Skills Ontario competition. You not only represented Sheridan, you raised the bar for what can be accomplished.

Congratulations to all our participants and award winners and good luck in the next stage of the Skills Competitions.
