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.

Thermo-fluids and Heat Transfer

The faculty’s research in energy/thermofluids focuses on the development of sustainable energy solutions for generation, storage and distribution of energy. This builds on Durham Region’s strengths in the energy sector, such as the Durham Strategic Energy Alliance (DSEA) and the nearby nuclear industry, which is home to most of Ontario’s nuclear stations. DSEA is a consortium of industry, private sector, municipal governments and academia that includes leaders of the energy sector.

Specific areas of current faculty research in energy include:

  • Biomass combustion and gasification;
  • Energy conversion and management;
  • Fuel cells and integrated energy systems;
  • Hydrogen production, storage, transportation, delivery and use;
  • Heat transfer, fluid mechanics and multiphase flows;
  • Integrated and combined cycle power generation;
  • Modelling and simulation of energy systems;
  • Multi-generation energy systems;
  • Refrigeration and air conditioning;
  • Renewable energy systems (wind, solar, geothermal); and
  • Thermal energy storage.
