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.


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

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.

Bayer Digital Campus Challenge 2018

Bayer invites students from natural sciences, engineering, medicine, IT, economics and business administration, whose focus is Machine & Deep Learning, Gene Therapy, Precision Medicine, and Workspace 5.0., to participate in this open innovation competition. This free event offers students professional mentoring opportunities with experienced Bayer employees, the possibility to sell their project or develop it in collaboration with Bayer, and the chance to win a trip to Barcelona to pitch your idea to senior executives.

Sign up today for the 'Digital Campus Challenge 2018' hosted by Bayer. The deadline to apply is November 4, 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!
