Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

PhD student Wing Yi Pao and undergraduate student in the automotive engineering program Long Li have won the 2022 CSME National Student Design Competition under the prize category of “Technical Prowess in Mechanical Engineering”. They developed a rain simulation system (patent pending) for use in wind tunnels that more realistically simulates natural rainfall than traditional pressurized spray nozzles, allowing for more accurate testing of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
