Michelin Challenge Design Competition

Michelin Challenge Design Competition

Fri, October 21, 2016

Alumnus Kurt Scanlan has placed 3rd in the Michelin Challenge Design Competition with a project 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.

HSF Tetris Bench

HSF Tetris Bench

Wed, September 14, 2016

The Humber Students' Federation has some new furniture to show off thanks to students from multiple programs in the School of Applied Technology.

HSF hosted a design competition for outdoor furniture last fall, and received a number of incredible entries.  The winning design was submitted by Kimberlyn Dampitan of the Bachelor of Industrial Design program.  Her concept was to add a playful, retro feeling to the space by creating life-sized Tetris pieces that can be moved into different configurations based on how students want to use the furniture.

Once the design was chosen, HSF commissioned students in the Industrial Woodworking Technician and Cabinet Making program to build the pieces. Over the winter semester, Allen Picanco, Richard Eng, and A.J. Zumpano constructed the pieces using a variety of hand tools and CNC equipment.

The HSF student executives, builders, and designer were able to meet this week to officially unveil the new furniture.

Colleges were requested to submit projects that met funding criteria and a substantial completion requirement of April 2018. 

We are very excited to announce that the School of Applied technology has applied for the funding of the Centre for Technology and Innovation (North Campus). 

Preliminary planning is underway with the School of Applied Technology, the School of Media Studies and Information Technology and Humber Research to develop a state-of-the-art idea accelerator, with programs focused on sustainable building practices, automated manufacturing and human-centered, technology-enabled solutions. Planning is in progress for the construction of a 70,000-square-foot building that will be located in the area that is currently parking lot 3A, between the LRC and the University of Guelph-Humber building.
