The Faculty of Applied Science and Technology celebrated World Engineering Day with our annual National Engineering Month event on March 4th, 2022. The event is Canada’s largest celebration of engineering excellence.
Sheridan College is a proud sponsor of the NEM Ontario and co-hosted the event alongside our valued partner. This year, the event focused on practical learning through Sheridan College’s CDIO framework in the engineering degrees offered.
So what makes Sheridan College’s Engineering Programs so special?
Amjed Majeed, the Associate Dean for the School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Technology, explained the decision to hold the event in the first week of a month-long celebration. In 2022, the first week of the National Engineering Month is focused on the professional accreditation and designation process.
The faculty opted to focus on the aspects of the Sheridan College’s Engineering Program that showcased the pathways in which the faculty’s degrees prepares our students to attain accreditation as an engineer in the field, especially through experiential learning and based on Sheridan College’s CDIO framework.
What is the CDIO?
The School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Technology delivers project-based learning in our two Bachelor of Engineering programs through the Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate framework. This approach towards engineering education teaches students to conceive, design, implement and operate engineering processes and products through project-based, hands-on learning methods.
Sheridan College partners with engineering leaders to provide our students with industry-standard equipment and technology, giving them a competitive advantage when they enter the workforce.
The CDIO framework aims to create “ready to engineer” graduates, who have the attained skills and knowledge to be successful in their engineering careers.
We want to thank NEM Ontario, our faculty, and staff for organizing the event, sharing their expertise, and their valuable contributions.
