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.

Electrical and Computer Engineering

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) offers Master of Applied Science (MASc), Master of Engineering (MEng) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

The MASc program is research-oriented and provides solid preparation for a Doctoral degree. The program entails a combination of course-based learning and a thesis that involves original research. The MEng program is a professional Master’s program for upgrading and expanding technical skills and knowledge. It has an emphasis on course-based learning, which can be accompanied by a major project. The PhD program leads to the highest academic degree, for a career such as a researcher in advanced technology development or university professor. It involves a combination of academic coursework and a dissertation, which requires a significant detailed body of original research that leads to innovative new research outcomes.

These graduate programs allow a student to study many areas associated with electrical and computer engineering. The focus currently includes communications and signal processing, computer and software engineering, systems control, power engineering and electronics.

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

  • Statistical and Array Processing
  • Wireless Communications and Signal Processing
  • Satellite Communications
  • Pervasive Computing
  • Sensor and Information Networks
  • Computer Forensics and Network Security
  • Web Modeling and Optimization
  • Computer Networking
  • Networked and Distributed Control Systems
  • Haptics and Virtual Reality
  • Medical and Mobile Robotics
  • Automatic/Intelligent Sensing and Control
  • Power Engineering

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

Applications currently being accepted.
