Engineering

Welcome

Students in Engineering Sciences learn to apply engineering principles, methods, and techniques to conceive, design, implement, and operate (CDIO) value-added engineering products, processes, and systems.

Our programs embrace project-based learning opportunities, working with real-world challenges and local industry partners. In fact, we have partnered with Siemens Technik Akademie Berlin to deliver the Siemens Mechatronics Systems Certification Program, a comprehensive industry skill certification.

We offer a range of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering programs suited to the many interests of our mechanical and electrical engineering students.

Highlights

Virtual Commissioning Capstone Project wins first prize in the Electromechanical Category

To complete their 3-year program, Sheridan engineering students must successfully complete a Capstone project to validate their degree. In one particular Capstone project, a team of three students worked together, in consultation with Siemens and Inoprod, to build a digital twin of a machine, and virtually commission it to validate the automation code, machine sequence and functionality in simulation.

Siemens Tecnomatix Process Simulate, TIA Portal, PLCSim Advanced and SolidEdge software were used to build and validate the digital twin. We are so proud that the Sheridan Capstone project team not only successfully completed their Capstone project, but won first prize, in the Electromechanical category. Congratulations to Harsh Sandip, Parekh Sakshi Jangra, and Ranjana Saini for their Capstone success.

2020 MEET Virtual Lab

The School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Technology has revealed their first virtual reality lab to be used in the spring summer semester of 2020, and beyond. The virtual lab was built completely in-house. According to Dr. Amjed Majeed, Associate Dean of the School, “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students and faculty were not be able to use the School’s physical labs, but we are committed to delivering programs with the highest quality standards.”

Dr. Andy Alubaidy designed and built a virtual reality lab to replicate our Instrumentation and Control lab at Davis campus. Virtual labs are used to provide access to various virtual equipment to inspire curiosity in students, and help them learn concepts through virtual experimentation.

Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Technologys innovative Degree delivery

Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Technology (MEET) is implementing an integrated learning block (ILB) in their CDIO-led Engineering Education. The objective is to combine various courses into an ILB having a unified mission and objective that goes far beyond traditional prerequisites and co-requisites.

At MEET, we are applying an ILB with three engineering courses offered within the same semester for all our B.Eng. degree programs. The ILB deliverables are based on the design of a chosen engineering system or sub-unit in a project-based learning environment supported with industrial collaborators. Drs Mouhamed Abdulla, Meagan Troop and Amjed Majeed produced a paper providing the framework for implementing an ILB in engineering programs which examines the opportunities and challenges related to this type of curriculum design based on CEAB and CDIO competencies.

Sheridan’s innovative approach in the Bachelor’s of Engineering (B.Eng.) curriculum design paper appeared in a peer-reviewed publication that was presented at the 16th International CDIO Conference. The conference was originally to be hosted in Bangkok, Thailand, but this did not go ahead as planned due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, the event took place virtually on June 8-10, 2020, and it was hosted online at the CDIO headquarters by Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden.
