Humber College and SICK, a leading sensor manufacturer, signed a three-year partnership agreement designed to build awareness of new industry automation sensor solutions and Industry 4.0 ready sensor technologies.
SICK will provide sensor technologies and services worth $765,000, training opportunities for Humber students and scholarships called the SICK Canada Leadership & Vision Awards.
SICK is one of eight founding members of Humber’s Advanced Manufacturing Skills Consortium. The consortium is a group of industry partners working with the college to train students and employees of Canadian companies in the new Barrett Centre for Technology Innovation.
“Partnering with SICK enhances Humber’s sensor and industry automation expertise, providing our students and faculty with new learning opportunities,” says Humber President Chris Whitaker.
“The workforce is continually changing,” adds Craig S. Smith, President of SICK Ltd. Canada. “Partnering with Humber … gives us insight into student visionaries that will shape the future.”
