After two years of study, long hours, and hard work, NIC's Industrial Automation diploma students will showcase their skills with an Open House demonstration of their final capstone project.
Friends, families, colleagues, neighbours and the general public to are invited to see a live demonstration, beginning Thursday, May 21 at 2 pm in room D207 at NIC's Campbell River campus.
This year’s class will be showcasing two projects:
Not far from IKEA
The first project is a fully automated manufacturing system designed to mass produce Build Your Own Garden Bench kits. Complete with robotics, automated controls and instrumentation, this system processes wood, compiles all the required parts, and packages it for retail distribution, much like the systems used by IKEA and similar manufacturers. The project is a team effort developed over four weeks by the entire class. This demonstration will mark the system’s first ever complete run.
Who loves wine?
The second project is a prototype currently in the concept development stages for the Hornby Island Estate Winery. This one-of-a-kind automated filling process for wine bottles includes an NIC-developed system that works with Hornby Island Estate Winery’s innovative ultra-fine bubbles, creating a “magic bubbles” sparkling wine or beverage experience unlike anything currently on the market.
Successful completion of the capstone project is a program requirement.
This is a big day for our soon-to-be graduates! We invite you to celebrate their accomplishments with us. Light refreshments will be served by NIC's Professional Cook students.
