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.

We are proud of providing market-oriented engineering programs that are designed to equip you with the skills required in the evolving 21st century marketplace. Accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB), graduates from any of our undergraduate programs meet the educational requirements for registration as a licensed professional engineer.

Our undergraduate programs provide you with opportunities to develop lifelong learning skills and gain hands-on engineering design experience, facilitated by our design co-chairs in the departments of Automotive and Mechatronics Engineering (AME), Electrical, Computer and Software Engineering (ECSE) and Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (MME). 

You will develop design skills in your area of specialization with an emphasis on teamwork and professional communication. During your final year capstone courses, you will participate in multidisciplinary design projects. You will not only gain the required experience in your field of study, but develop a critical understanding of the team approach to problem solving skills.

If you are interested in pursuing a management career, you can choose our engineering and management programs, which are designed to develop key management skills in areas such as operation and project management, finance, human resources and managerial accounting. Graduates of these programs will have a broad understanding of business and will be ready to take on managerial roles or start their own business.

You will also have the opportunity to participate in optional co-op and internship work terms, to gain meaningful and paid engineering experience while exploring possible career options.
