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.

Game Design Club

Game Design Club Banner


Are you looking to take your game development skills to the next level? Engineering Outreach within the faculty of Engineering & Applied Science is excited to be offering a 3-week Game Design club for students in grades 9-12. The Game Design club is an event designed for students who want an engaging experience to learn how to develop their own 2D platformer game from scratch using the Unity game engine!

Over the course of three days, students will be introduced to game development concepts and techniques such as tilemaps, sprite sheets and game logic, and will work together with our instructors to create a fun and challenging platformer game that they can be proud of and share with their friends and family. This coding club is a great opportunity for students who are interested in game development to engage with undergraduate students in their final year of studies in Mechatronics Engineering, and hear about their experiences in University and the workplace, gain practical skills, make new friends, and have fun while learning! The workshop offers students a strong understanding and building block for a future in engineering.
