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.

Automotive Engineering

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at Ontario Tech offers Master of Applied Science and Master of Engineering programs in Automotive Engineering.

The MASc program is research oriented and provides excellent preparation for a doctoral degree. The program entails a combination of course-based learning and a thesis that often involves original research. The MEng program is a professional masters for upgrading and expanding technical skills and knowledge, and has an emphasis on course-based learning, sometimes accompanied by a major project.

The Masters programs in Automotive Engineering allow a student to study all of the main areas associated with automotive systems. They provide students with knowledge and skills required for development of advanced technologies in the all areas of the automotive sector and related industries. This program is the only graduate program in Automotive Engineering in Canada.

Faculty members are involved in research in a variety of areas. These include:

  • Vehicle dynamics
  • Fuel cells and hydrogen
  • Automotive aerodynamics
  • Noise, vibrations and harshness
  • Automotive materials and manufacturing
  • Chassis design
  • Automotive software and system modelling
  • Alternative fuels
  • Hybrid vehicles

Students enrolled in our graduate programs will have access to our state-of-the-art research facilities and laboratories.

Applications currently being accepted.
