Architectural Technology students visited the Wood Solutions Fair on Thursday November 17th to learn more about what the construction industry uses in terms of design and construction with wood and wood products.
One of our graduates from last year, Kurt Scanlan, has placed third overall in the Michelin Challenge Design Competition with a project that he developed in his 4th year Vehicle Studio class.
Josh Gadomski, from the same class was a finalist in the same competition. Their were 10 finalists (including the three eventual winners) and 10 honourable mentions beyond that.
This is a great achievement - the Michelin Challenge Design Competition is an established worldwide competition and the competition is always very stiff. We have had students achieve "Honourable Mentions" in the past (Ryan Ebbers in the 2016 competition and Jordie Lewis in the 2011 competition), but this is the first and only time that we have placed in the Michelin Challenge.
To have had two students from a single studio class be considered finalists in a worldwide competition is very special indeed.
Humber faculty, architectural technology students, and interior design students partnered with the TRCA (Toronto and Region Conservation Authority) at Canada's largest environmental education center, The Kortright Centre, to create a Sustainable Design Space.
There will be 16 students participating in The Humber Visual Elements NIKE PAVE project competition to design a NIKE shoe wall. This wall will be built by Visual Elements and showcased at Globalshop 2017 in Vegas.
A greenhouse experiment is being conducted this semester to examine the effect of salt and fertilizer on the establishment of native plants.
To Employers, Students, Faculty and Staff, join us as we acknowledge all of our Employers who made a valuable contribution to student learning and success over the Summer 2017 work term, and say “well done” to the students who had a successful placement. Help us congratulate students as they receive their Certificates to acknowledge their accomplishment.
Work Placement will change your life! Not only do employers prefer to hire grads with work term experience, students who successfully participate in work placement typically have better job prospects upon graduation, and earn higher wages.
Come wish Electromechanical Engineering Technology grads Theo Willert and Avery Bird good luck before they leave to represent Canada at WorldSkills 2017 in Abu Dhabi!
