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.

About Us

WIE Logo

The goal of the Women in Engineering (WiE) Society is to build a community of women engineering students at Ontario Tech in order to help them feel a greater sense of belonging and lead them towards empowerment. To do this, WiE holds both social events which bring students together, and events for professional development to help them gain the skills necessary to stand out and succeed in the field of engineering, where women are still a minority. Students can get involved by participating in events and signing up to volunteer for booths and workshops.

Founded in 2004, Women in Engineering is a sub-society within the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. It was created by a woman engineering professor and an engineering advisor to address the issue of a lack of women engineers within the faculty. Since its creation, Women in Engineering has grown to include over 100 women engineering students.

We foster a welcoming and engaging space for women engineering students to create a sense of community on and off campus.

We connect woman students to future employers and engineering career opportunities across canada, and showcase successful female engineering professionals.

We equip our students with professional skills, connections, and inspiration to prepare them for their professional careers.

We give back to the community by running outreach events to encourage and inspire young women to pursue an education in Engineering.
