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.

Environmental Wind Chamber Laboratory

This lab consists of a one-of-a-kind wind modular chamber that has clear acrylic walls for easy visualization of experimental setups and fluid flows around structures. This lab is currently used to teach basic fluid dynamics principles and to explore applications of fundamental engineering knowledge into integrated engineering systems such as HVAC, Wind Turbines, Geothermal and Solar.

This fully automated wind chamber will have the capability of controlling the wind speed to the desired velocity in the test section. The in-house built 3-axis hotwire anemometer mounted into a robot will help students to quickly map the wind chamber during their labs and to learn the application of multidisciplinary engineering principles into integrated engineering design.
