Next stop... Johns Hopkins University

As a graduate from Applied Computing, Nicholas Dass was a student in the first ever cohort to earn a Bachelor of Applied Computer Science Mobile Computing degree from Sheridan.

Nicholas, and the depth of his knowledge in mobile and augmented reality-based applications which use disruptive technologies, has been further acknowledged by his acceptance into a Master's of Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence at The Johns Hopkins University. Acceptance into a Master's program at Johns Hopkins University is extremely competitive as it is one of the highest ranked institutions in the world. Acceptance into a Master's at Johns Hopkins is an outstanding accomplishment and speaks to Nicholas' exceptional capabilities in mobile computing.

Congratulations Nicholas. We are so proud of the work you did while at Sheridan and we wish you limitless success at Johns Hopkins.

Making a difference in the Community

John Wang, from the School of Applied Computing, is doing what he can to help during the COVID-19 pandemic. John has taken the initiative to organize a small group, in Brantford, to put their sewing skills to work making cloth masks for health-care and essential service workers, and for those who are immuno-compromised and in quarantined households.

Thank you, John, for doing what you can to support not only your students, but your community.

If anyone is interested in joining the initiative, or donating materials or elastics, please contact John Wang.
