Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design Technologies (CAMDT)

CAMDT is a 40,000 sq ft 'technology playground' for students, manufacturers and industry partners to explore highly specialized manufacturing and design equipment. CAMDT is a learning environment for students and a testing platform for local manufacturing and industry; a facility where students, industry partners and faculty experts come together to learn, apply, collaborate and innovate.

About CAMDT

CAMDT allows Sheridan College and its collaborators to address the challenges of the manufacturing industry while developing graduates with the skills and practical knowledge to make an immediate and positive impact on the workforce.


CAMDT connects Sheridan's technology and manufacturing partners, local small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and students in manufacturing excellence.

CAMDT Highlights

SingularityU Canada Global Impact Challenge 2019

Calling all Thought Leaders

Promote change and inspire innovation. The SingularityU Canada Global Impact Challenge wants you! An open call to innovators, entrepreneurs, scientists, and technologists to identify new technology opportunities in digital computing, food security, advanced manufacturing, artificial intelligence and the oceans industries.

The 2019 SingularityU Canada Global Impact Challenge's goal is to deliver a BIG idea that positively impacts Canadian lives. The idea will need to be scalable to one billion people worldwide in 10 years.

With an array of impressive prizes beyond bragging rights, if you're innovative and entrepreneurial, this is a challenge you won't want to miss!

2018 Take your kid to work day

No better place for 'take your kid to work' day than a technology playground!

Halton District School Board students Liam and Adam enjoyed a tour of the Skilled Trades Centre and the Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design Technologies where they got to learn about wet jet printers, millwright functions, plumbing and electrical, 3D printing and robotics.

Special thanks to Daniel Liao, Sarmad Sadik and Roman Motyka for touring around the grade 9 students.

SONAMI 2018

Sheridan's Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design Technologies (CAMDT) with partners Niagara College, McMaster University’s McMaster Manufacturing Research Institute (MMRI) and Mohawk College’s Additive Manufacturing Resource Centre (AMRC), have joined together to create the Southern Ontario Network for Advanced Manufacturing Innovation (SONAMI).

From prototype development to production planning and production automation, SONAMI partners have capabilities in the specializations of Additive Manufacturing, Flexible Manufacturing, High Productivity Manufacturing and Industrial Internet.

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!
