Euro Skills Mechatronics Competition

Thu, November 24, 2016

The first day of the Euro Skills Mechatronics Competition has proven to be a success for the students from Humber.

Humber students went head-to-head with strong European competitors from Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, and Hungary.

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.

Building The Right Career

Building The Right Career

Mon, September 12, 2016

Humber graduate, Shelly Vo, is a cabinetmaker who recently completed a one-year cabinet making program.

 

With only one other woman in Shelly's small shop, which is home to several Humber graduates, her gender has never been an issue. “It’s a very team-oriented environment and everyone feels equal in our shop. Humber brings up cabinetmakers that are respectful,” she says. “I would encourage young women in high school to take woodworking and other trades courses. The sooner you figure out doing what you love, the longer you can enjoy doing it.”

Greenhouse Research Experiment

Greenhouse Research Experiment

Wed, July 27, 2016

A greenhouse experiment is being conducted this semester to examine the effect of salt and fertilizer on the establishment of native plants.

Two native seed mixes, as well as the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario standard roadside seed mix, are being tested. Ben Doerksen, a work-study from the Landscape Technician program is assisting with the research. Humber School of Applied Technology instructor Lynn Short is a partner and co-applicant for this project.

Phase I of an outdoor study examining the effect of cover crops (oats, annual ryegrass, and pearl millet) on weed suppression prior to the establishment of native plants is also being completed. A literature review and a list of recommendations for future research will be compiled. The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority is an external partner of Humber College in this research.

Humber Students Create a Sustainable Design Space through the Design of The Kortright Centre

Wed, July 13, 2016

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, they met to create a Sustainable Design Space. This interdisciplinary project took students outside of the classroom and gave them the experience of working with a client that engaged both their program skills as well as their soft skills. The experience allowed them to have a taste of the real world while still being students in their respective programs.
