You may recognize Avery Bird and Theo Willert as Humber's Skills Ontario, Skills Canada and WorldSkills competition winners.

Today the Electromechanical Engineering Technology grads were at Queen's Park for Colleges Day as they demonstrated the skills they picked up in their time studying at Humber.

They brought with them the Delta robot integration machine they helped design and build.

Using a vision system directly managed by the robot, the machine finds and identifies matching objects moving down a conveyor and accurately picks and places them. The innovative, high-speed sorting machine could be used in the pharmaceutical and automotive industries to increase productivity. 

Following their demonstration at the High Tech World of Colleges exhibit, Avery and Theo joined Etobicoke North MPP Shafiq Qaadri, Humber President Chris Whitaker and Magna International's Adriana Huntington and Jason Barber for lunch. 

Since graduating from Humber in 2017, the two became the first alumni to participate in the college's Springboard Mentorship program. Both work at Magna Plastcoat in Brampton.
