Peterborough ON – (July 29, 2021) – The search for computer-aided design support, electronics and mechanical engineering to help design a smart wine rack led local entrepreneur Glenn Verkindt to team up with Fleming Mechatronics students Himil Shankar and Jeet Patel. 

The idea was to create a system to accommodate any space, displaying wine bottles with integrated lighting. 

Fleming’s Mechatronics program allows students to participate in applied projects. This gives students a chance to interact and work with industry partners to build their collaboration and communication skills and gain real-world experience. 

When Shankar’s professor presented the opportunity to work with a successful entrepreneur, he was excited to learn from someone with a wide range of experience in the industry. 

“I have learned a lot from Glenn, not just about engineering processes but also entrepreneurship. Additionally, I learned woodworking, critical and innovative thinking, user-centric designs and developed my skills,” said Shankar.

As for Jeet Patel, the applied project has given him the motivation to pursue a career as an entrepreneur. 

“Students don’t get this kind of a chance to work alongside an entrepreneur who has experience in the industry. We get to see firsthand what it takes to work in this field, and it has provided me with the knowledge I need to excel,” said Patel.

Verkindt has worked as a self-employed design engineer and entrepreneur for more than 40 years and recently started his own company Cellar Genius. He explained the power of collaboration and how it can benefit all parties involved. 

“Even the best designer can get stuck, like any creative professional. But when a small group of thinkers throw ideas around, or even just ask questions to clarify the issues and stimulate discussion, magic can truly happen,” Verkindt said. 

Cellar Genius now has an online presence and the minimal, efficient and Canadian-made innovative wine rack is available for order. Fleming mechatronics students will continue to work with Verkindt to develop the product even further. This includes adding an integrated lighting and sensing system using power supplied from the cables that suspend the bottles. A node above each bottle will backlight the wall behind the rack. In addition, the node will sense the presence of a bottle, turn on a label light, and update an app, adding that particular wine vintage to the app’s inventory. 

Shankar and Patel have gained immense knowledge and skills from this experience and are looking forward to what comes next. 

“I want to design and develop my own product one day. I want to work hard to achieve the success that my professors and Glenn have,” said Shankar.

“I hope to become an entrepreneur one day myself. Working on the smart wine rack gave me a sense of accomplishment which has inspired me to think outside the box when working on developing engineering products,” said Patel. 

Businesses looking for support from students and Fleming’s state-of-the-art facilities, or applicants interested in mechatronics applied projects, should contact Fleming Research Scientist and Professor Fereydoon Diba for more information: fereydoon.diba@flemingcollege.ca

Fleming establishes two new research centres with provincial and federal funding

Peterborough ON – (July 21, 2021) – Fleming College has been awarded nearly $8 million in long-term funding for two new applied research centres in the fields of advanced manufacturing technologies and aquaculture – Centre for Advancement in Mechatronics and Industrial Internet of Things (CAMIIT) and Centre for Innovative Aquaculture Production (CIAP).

The new centres, established in response to the needs of Ontario’s key industries, will each receive $2 million in funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) to support research activity over the next five years. In addition, each centre will receive approximately $2 million from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and the Ontario Research Fund College-Industry Innovation Fund (ORF-CIIF) to support the creation of the research spaces and fully-equipped laboratories.

“Ranked as one of Canada’s top research colleges, Fleming has repeatedly demonstrated that our researchers, faculty and students can contribute to innovation in our province and beyond,” said Fleming President Maureen Adamson. “Securing the funding from NSERC, CFI and ORF for two new research centres emphasizes the significance and quality of the work we do and what we offer our industry partners and the community.”

CAMIIT at the Sutherland Campus in Peterborough is expanding Fleming’s applied research activities in design, development, prototyping, and improvement of products and technologies for use in the advanced manufacturing marketplace. The research at CAMIIT has applications in several industries, including asset management, aerospace, computing, communications, agriculture and mining.

CIAP is advancing innovation in aquaculture through partnerships with members of the industry and supporting sectors, such as fish feed producers and hatchery technology developers. A new custom-designed research facility will be built at the Frost Campus in Lindsay to complement the existing on-campus hatchery. The new CIAP building will provide customizable rearing environments for multiple aquaculture species and projects.

“Both centres will build experience, capacity and expertise in emerging areas of applied research at the College,” said Brett Goodwin, Vice President, Applied Research and Innovation at Fleming. “Our researchers and students work shoulder-to-shoulder with industry partners to bring innovation to small and medium-sized businesses. This funding will ensure that more of our students will have opportunities to engage in high quality research and build vital skills and connections for their future careers.”

Fleming is also home to the Centre for Advancement in Water and Wastewater Technologies – an internationally recognized research centre that has been providing applied research and technology development services since 2005.

Fleming’s unique-in-Canada Ecosystem Management program offers part-time options

Peterborough ON – (July 15, 2021) – Fleming’s unique ecosystem management programs are now offered in a part-time format. Neither full-time or part-time studies in this field are available anywhere else in the country. Programs available include:

With the new part-time options, all courses and learning experiences for students will remain the same, except for the number of courses required each semester. The amount of coursework and sequencing have been adjusted to create a balance that reinforces a foundation of skills and knowledge, which is built upon each semester. Students in these programs are still able to apply for international placements and take the Indigenous Perspectives Designation.   

The purpose of the new offerings is to provide more flexibility and make it easier for students to achieve their goals. The part-time options for these popular programs address many issues that prospective students face: the heavy workload of a full academic schedule, balancing work and life commitments, and maintaining a job for a source of income. The new part-time options address exactly these concerns for students and those with a busy work and life schedule who are interested in upskilling and retraining.

For more information, check out the part-time programs listed above or visit the School of Environmental & Natural Resource Sciences.

Fleming celebrates Indigenous Perspectives Designation graduates at special ceremony

Peterborough ON – (July 13, 2021) – Fleming and members of the Indigenous community hosted a special event on July 9 to recognize the achievements of graduates who completed an Indigenous Perspectives Designation (IPD).  

Fleming College is committed to Truth and Reconciliation, which includes reflecting on our past, owning our truth, and a commitment to the inclusion of Indigenous intellectual and cultural traditions through curriculum and learning approaches. Programs offering IPD capture and reflect history, including oral history, as understood by Indigenous peoples, and recognize that Indigenous knowledge can benefit all learners. 

“Fleming has committed through the signing of the Indigenous Education Protocol and our Strategic Plan to be a positive partner in the community and a welcoming place for all. By completing additional academic requirements, IPD graduates have demonstrated a similar commitment to understanding their responsibility towards reconciliation as they begin their professional journeys,” said Fleming President Maureen Adamson.

IPD graduates took their learning to the next level by choosing a path that includes Indigenous perspectives, peoples, cultures, histories, traditions and contributions to our shared society. They committed to learn discipline-specific Indigenous curriculum in each semester, beyond what is required in the two mandatory Indigenous Studies courses, as well as experiential Indigenous activities. 

“Very proud of the IPD graduates and faculty who work hard each year to incorporate Indigenous knowledge and pedagogy into their learning. This is reconcili-action! As described by the Downie Wenjack Foundation: ‘A ReconciliACTION is a meaningful action that moves reconciliation forward. ReconciliACTIONs aim to bring Indigenous and non-Indigenous people together in the spirit of reconciliation to create awareness, share and learn.’ Nishin Graduates!” said Elizabeth Stone, Academic Chair for Indigenous Studies at Fleming.

These graduates worked hard to complete the extra academic requirements, actively engaged with Indigenous communities, and participated in Indigenous-led initiatives and professional activities. They challenged themselves to expand their knowledge as it relates to Indigenous realities on Turtle Island and explored how they can respectfully build, maintain and support the Indigenous community while acknowledging their diversity and autonomy. Congratulations to all Fleming IPD graduates.

The IPD ceremony can be viewed on the Convocation page. For more information about Fleming’s IPD programs, please visit here.

Fleming’s culinary students and faculty donate meals to support the vulnerable during the pandemic

Fleming student Nhu Quynh Nguyen preparing meal containers

Peterborough ON – (July 7, 2021) – Fleming College prides itself on building strong communities. Part of doing so is through being an active member of the community and supporting those in need.

Fleming’s culinary students and faculty from the School of Trades and Technology have stepped up during these trying times to prepare, package and donate various food items to local non-profit organizations – everything from soup to decadent desserts.

Since February, the School has donated a total of 3,776 servings to local emergency shelters and community centres that help Peterborough’s homeless. This includes the Peterborough Regional Health Centre, Yes Shelter for Youth and Families, Brock Mission/Cameron House and One Roof Community Centre.

Fleming faculty member Natalie Wood says it is fulfilling knowing that the students’ hard work, generosity and innovation are going towards something more significant.

“This experience was truly rewarding on so many levels. It taught students how to use creative solutions to make tasty filling meals from very few ingredients and donate them to those in need,” said Wood.

In addition to helping the local community, this initiative allowed students to learn new techniques and skills for preparing and packaging food.  

“Much of the class focused on working with fourth-semester culinary students to package the foods that were produced or create soups and meals with a leftover product,” she said.

For Fleming graduate Jim Hoey this hit home, as he has experienced firsthand what it’s like to have very little.

“I was once homeless many years ago and having somewhere to get a meal helped me make it through a challenging time in my life and meant the world to me. It showed me someone cared,” Hoey said.

Mary MacLeod, Operations Manager with the School of Trades and Technology, is hopeful to see more initiatives like this in the future.

“It was such a rewarding experience for our team to help Peterborough’s most vulnerable during one of the most difficult years we have faced in the last half century of being part of this incredible community,” she said.

MacLeod added that although their efforts may take different forms, they hope to continue giving back to the community. 

Fleming stands in solidarity with Indigenous Community this Canada Day

Peterborough ON – (July 1, 2021) – Fleming is committed to Truth and Reconciliation, which includes reflecting on our past and owning our truth. This Canada Day, we must honour our collective truth that this nation has been built on Indigenous lands and at the expense of the loss of Indigenous culture, traditions and lives. 

This is a solemn time for grieving and reflection. Staff and students are encouraged to evaluate what it means to be Canadian and what it means to be treaty people living within Indigenous territories. Ask questions, reflect and seek resources.

Dr. Shirley Williams of Wiikwemkoong, now residing in Peterborough, is an Elder Advisor with Fleming Indigenous Education Council and Professor Emeritus at Trent University. She shares this important message.

The jingle dancer in the video is Elizabeth Osawamick, Anishinaabe kew from Wiikwemkoong, who has shared a healing dance to help lift our spirits and provide us with strength during this difficult time. The building Elizabeth is dancing in front of is the Spanish Indian Residential School, located in Spanish, Ontario. The filming was done by her daughter Florence Osawamick.

Culinary Management student wins Fleming’s first national medal in cooking

Skills Canada silver medal winner Liam Collin

Peterborough ON – (June 30, 2021) Culinary Management student Liam Collin has won a silver medal at the Skills Canada Virtual National Competition. It is Fleming College’s first national medal in the cooking category. This achievement against top students from across the country adds to a previous national gold medal in restaurant service for Fleming and a long list of medal winners in the provincial competition over the years.

Collin prepared a three-course meal and completed a pressure test and costing exercise for the judges late last month with the closing ceremonies held on June 15. “As someone with limited restaurant experience, this medal is a huge win for me as it proves that I can succeed in the food service industry after graduation,” Collin said.

He added that the training he has received at Fleming gave him the confidence and belief needed to perform at this level. “I’ve learned so many important techniques over the past two years at Fleming that not only included food preparation but also safety and sanitation. Both of which were instrumental for my success in this competition. The faculty were also spectacular in helping me realize my potential and always pushed me to be my best, and I could not have done it without their support.”

Collin also won the gold medal at the Skills Ontario Competition last month and his program coordinator at Fleming is proud of the recognition at the provincial and national stage.

“Fleming students performing and flourishing at any level is a moment of pride and joy for the College but shining at the national stage amongst top talent from across the country is really special,” said Linda Poirier, Vice President, Academic Experience.  

“Liam is truly deserving of this accolade and demonstrates the qualities we hope to instill in all of our graduates. The medal is also a testament to the hard work and dedication of the faculty and technicians to provide the best possible support and training to our students throughout their time with Fleming,” Poirier added.

Collin has now completed the Culinary Management program and was presented with his diploma during summer Convocation. He hopes his performance at the provincial and national competitions this year brings him opportunities to begin an exciting career in the food and restaurant industry.

Fleming College to require COVID-19 vaccination for students in residence

Peterborough ON – (June 25, 2021) – Fleming is prioritizing student experience on campus and the safety of everyone in the College community by requiring students in residence to have received at least the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine for the fall semester. The mandatory vaccine policy is based on scientific data and supported by Peterborough Public Health (PPH).

“The pandemic continues to be an evolving situation, and we have always emphasized that safety is everyone’s responsibility at Fleming. The vaccination requirement for those in residence will provide peace of mind to students and their families,” said Fleming College President Maureen Adamson.

With the virus and variants remaining a deadly threat in our local communities and posing the risk of outbreaks at institutions around the country, medical data shows vaccination to be an effective public health measure. Fleming’s policy is grounded in research and recommendations from the scientific community, and it balances individual interests with occupational health and safety, human rights, privacy and access to education considerations. Fleming also supports the broader public health guidance that all students, staff, faculty and community members get fully vaccinated. 

It is recommended that residence students get the vaccine 14 days prior to their move-in date. Those unable to receive a first dose before moving in, will have 14 days to get vaccinated. The College will provide support to students who require first and second doses and is working closely with PPH to coordinate access to vaccines.

The vaccine verification process will be communicated directly to students. Any student who cannot be vaccinated on medical or other grounds recognized by the Ontario Human Rights Code may request an accommodation. Fleming is committed to protection of privacy, and any information gathered will be in compliance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

The vaccine requirement applies only to the College-owned residences on campus and not the entire campus or to those living off campus. Alternative off-campus housing is available with assistance and resources through Fleming’s off-campus housing services.

In addition to the mandatory vaccination policy, other Fleming Safe measures will continue to be implemented, including masking and reduced capacity limits in shared spaces, and enhanced cleaning and sanitation of all areas.

More information about Fleming’s COVID-19 practices and protocols can be found here.

Never has a graduating class been called to step into the future with more hope and purpose.

In absence of in-person celebration, every effort has been made to ensure the virtual ceremony closely resembles the look and feel of traditional face-to-face celebrations that we all look forward to in the near future.

The event will feature honour song, land acknowledgement, welcome by Board Chair Fred Clifford, remarks by Fleming President Maureen Adamson, an Indigenous welcome, and O Canada performed by Kate Suhr.

In advance of the ceremony, the soon-to-be graduates are receiving their Convocation packages which include credential (diploma, certificate or post-graduate certificate), collar, alumni pin and Fleming swag. Those who earned their Indigenous Perspectives Designation will also receive a letter acknowledging this accomplishment included in their package.

Graduates are encouraged to share their Fleming pride on social media by snapping a selfie with their credential and tagging #FlemingGrad. Photos will be re-shared by Fleming and included in the online ceremony.

While the circumstances of this joyous occasion may not be ideal, there’s hope and promise of brighter days ahead. We are very excited to celebrate our graduates, and we hope to see everyone virtually at Fleming’s 55th Convocation.

Join the Convocation ceremony on Thursday, June 24 at 1 p.m. virtually: https://flemingcollege.ca/convocation.

After completing his degree, he moved to Toronto to seek work at a larger firm. He found that at McLaren McCann, where he handled the Nestle Nutrition USA account.  

After a year, Bullock accepted a position at kbs+p, where he was the execution lead for The Keg Steakhouse and Bar, and soon became the account lead on all integrated business for The Keg in 2011. Recognizing his significant success since graduating, Bullock was a Premier’s Award nominee in the recent graduate category in 2011.

Having developed a strong relationship with The Keg executives, Bullock took on the role of Director of Marketing in 2013. He transitioned to several other positions, eventually being promoted to Chief Marketing Officer responsible for the development of brand vision, strategy, planning, and implementation of marketing and sales driving programs.

Bullock has accomplished great career success in his 15 years since graduating from Fleming. He remembers his time at Fleming with fondness and credits the teachers for putting him on the marketing path early on in his schooling.

Bullock will be honoured with the Alumnus of Distinction Award during Fleming College’s Virtual Convocation on June 24.
