Avnan is a proud supporter of emerging and aspiring engineering students in Ontario. Through its partnership with post secondary schools, it provides financial contribution and job opportunities to students of mechanical and electrical engineering.
Over the past few years, Avnan has supported students of Sheridan College’s School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Technology (MEET). Avnan offers both a scholarship and an academic award at Sheridan to a second-year or third-year student in either the Electronics Engineering Technician or Electronics Engineering Technology program.
The Avnan Scholarship at Sheridan College
Avnan offers a scholarship award of $2000 given to an engineering student that best meets the eligibility requirements. Students apply for the scholarship through an online application process.
This year, Anand Jain, Founder of Avnan, awarded the 2022 Avnan Award of Excellence to Hassan Saleem.

Avnan Award of Excellence
The Avnan Award of Excellence is based on academic merit, and is presented to the student with the highest GPA completing Year One of Sheridan’s Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical Engineering) program. The academic award celebrates excellence in the engineering program and is presented in-person at an awards ceremony in the spring at the end of the school year.
Avnan Capstone Award – School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering & Technology
The School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering & Technology, within Sheridan’s Faculty of Applied Science & Technology held its Capstone Projects Open House on December 9, 2022. The Engineering capstones are an opportunity for students in their final year of an engineering technology diploma program to apply the knowledge and skills learned over their time at Sheridan to create a practical, applied solution to a real-world problem.
At this year’s annual student capstone showcase event, third-year technology students from Sheridan’s engineering programs showcased their capstone design projects to a crowd that included Carol Altilia, Sheridan’s Provost and Vice President, Academic, as well as community members, sponsors and several key industry partners.
Students in both the mechanical and electrical programs displayed their projects at the Centre of Advanced Manufacturing Design and Technology (CAMDT) and were judged on their projects by panel members from different industry sectors.
Avnan proudly sponsored $2500 in prizes for the winning teams. As a sponsor, Avnan was recognized with its brand displayed at the event and received an invitation to participate on the judging panel and to present the prizes to the winning teams.
“We truly believe in supporting talent of the future and it is important for businesses like ours to give back to the community. Our financial contribution through scholarships recognizes academic achievement that inspires competition and our sponsorship of programs is our way of promoting innovation hosted by reputable institutions” says Anuj Jain, CEO of Avnan.
“I am impressed by the innovative and creative solutions our students developed for the challenges they take on and the impact their work can have in the engineering world during their journey in capstone project course,” says Andy Alubaidy, robotics professor and program coordinator in the Faculty of Applied Science and Technology (FAST).
“Congratulations to all engineering students on their outstanding accomplishment,” says Amjed Majeed, Associate Dean, FAST. “We are proud and inspired by their accomplishments. When you have a chance to attend these capstone projects you would certainly know how much work and effort goes into these projects. Students work throughout their last semester developing their topics, doing research, designing prototypes towards building functional and innovative projects while applying the learning gained since they entered the program.”
