OAKVILLE, Ontario – Sheridan College and Hatch have signed a memorandum of understanding that will promote further collaboration between the two organizations, aimed at enhancing educational opportunities for Sheridan students, while also fostering innovation and economic growth.
The MOU builds and expands on a master collaborative research and contribution agreement that will see the company contribute $300,000 in funds and in-kind support over the next three years. The agreement was confirmed in June, after Sheridan faculty in the Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design Technologies (CAMDT) had already completed a number of custom machine design projects with Hatch.
Under the terms of the MOU, Hatch may participate and lend its expertise in the form of guest lectures, technical workshops and provide recommendations on curriculum development. Further opportunities will be explored for Sheridan students in the form of internships, apprenticeships and/or co-op placements at Hatch, both locally and internationally. Hatch and Sheridan will also work together to raise community awareness of the value of technical and engineering careers in addressing current challenges and building sustainable economies and cities.
