DMG MORI Canada and Ontario's Humber College are entering a five-year partnership to support skilled trades and STEM education.

Collaboration will focus initially on industry 4.0 enabled five axis CNC technology and broaden to support outreach initiatives related to education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) over the course of the agreement.

DMG MORI Canada Inc. is making significant investments in Industry 4.0 development over five years, including awards and scholarships ,which will be named the DMG MORI Awards. DMG MORI will also work with the college to develop education to advance employment pathways and recruitment opportunities for Humber students and graduates.

“Our students and faculty will benefit from DMG MORI’s expertise and learning on their machine tooling systems, as they prepare for the highly-skilled, advanced manufacturing jobs of today and tomorrow,” says Chris Whitaker, President and CEO, Humber College. “Through this and other industry and community partnerships, Humber is building a network of Centres of Innovation that are bringing together people, ideas and technology to solve real-world business challenges.”

DMG MORI will now be part of the planned Industry 4.0 consortium that Humber is forming, and their equipment and technology will be featured in The Barrett Centre for Technology Innovation, the college’s hub for bringing industry and education together.

“DMG MORI approaches innovation through co-operation. We know that the specialized world of machine tools has globalized and we need to work together with industry and education partners to identify new ways to improve productivity,” says Daniel Medrea, Managing Director, DMG MORI Canada. “Working with the Barrett CTI builds on our long relationship with Humber, and will create opportunity to work with students, faculty and other industry leaders to make Canadian manufacturing competitive in the global market.”
