Read Dr. Rayegani’s full biography 

As Director of CAMDT, Dr. Rayegani (P.Eng, FEC) is leading the integration of undergraduate research and industry partnerships in Sheridan’s mechanical and electrical engineering curriculum.

Under his leadership, Sheridan College recently become a member of the CDIO (Conceive, Design, Implement and Operate Initiative – a worldwide movement to restore the balance between teaching practice skills and the fundamentals of math and science to engineering students. Sheridan is the fifth Canadian institution and the first college in the world to be accepted.

As the ASME Chair on Additive Manufacturing, Dr. Rayegani will also be leading the launch of ASME’s inaugural additive manufacturing challenge designed to give mechanical and multi-disciplinary undergraduate students around the world an opportunity to re-engineer existing products or create new designs that minimize energy consumption and/or improve energy efficiency.

Key Roles at CAMDT: 

Director, Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and Design Technologies (CAMDT)

Through CAMDT, Sheridan’s faculty members involve students in applied research projects related to product and process innovation for small and medium manufacturing enterprises. The Centre also provides manufacturers with access to state-of-the-art equipment, services and highly-skilled advisors at its 40,000 square foot facility in Brampton, ON. With the recent addition of a new 3D Production System, Sheridan will advance Canada’s expertise in both additive and direct digital manufacturing – where 3D printing and rapid prototyping are going next.
