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.

Discover Engineering

Have you decided that you want to study Engineering?  Are you thinking about attending Ontario Tech University? If yes, you’re invited to attend our Women in Engineering Discover Engineering event! 

Presented by The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science and Women in Engineering at Ontario Tech University. 

Join us for a fun weekend to learn more about the first-year engineering experience! This weekend-long, in-person event is open to all female-identifying grade 12 students who have received an offer of admission from Ontario Tech University. This event will support the incoming class of female engineering students and connect them with like-minded female engineering undergraduate students.

Participants will have the opportunity to engage in a number of activities including a tour of campus, discussion with one of their future professors, hands-on workshops in engineering skills, and spending time with undergraduate students in their program. To help them fully experience student life at Ontario Tech, participants will be given a room in residence to stay in on Saturday night. Meals will be provided.

Students who are unable to attend in person can still participate in some of the activities, indicated below, by joining us on Google Meets.

First-year is a very important year with a lot of change, and we hope this event helps prepare participants for university and engineering at Ontario Tech University. We also hope to introduce participants to the support they will have available at the university.


REGISTRATION is closed, stay tuned for future updates!
