Assets And Services
Offering SMEs a “technology playground” to help them develop and adopt new technology alongside Sheridan researchers, CAMDT is turning Brampton into a ‘hub’-urb – a vibrant place where experts come together, ideas collide, and innovation flourishes. CAMDT is embracing a new research and development model that is being realized through a shared commitment to transfer best practices to the regional manufacturing community. The Centre acts as the central link between large, leading corporations that provide the technology and expertise to the College (including ABB and Cimetrix), and the local SMEs that explore how to integrate these new tools into their businesses with the help of Sheridan’s faculty and student researchers.
