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.

One of the greatest of advantages of the University of Ontario Institute of Technology’s (UOIT) programs in Engineering and Applied Science is the opportunity for students to apply their academic skills to solve real-world problems.

Fourth-year Automotive, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (AMME) students demonstrated their knowledge by putting their work on display for fellow students, faculty, staff and the general public at the 10th-annual Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Design Engineering Exhibition. They also competed for cash awards in the ninth-annual Capstone Design Competition.

“Once again we were extremely pleased with the high calibre of design projects showcased at these events,” said organizer Dr. Remon Pop-Iliev, Professor, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science (FEAS) and NSERC-GMCL Chair in Innovative Design Engineering. “Each year the exhibition and competition provide students with a unique opportunity to inform others about the design achievements they have attained during the academic year. We are proud of all of our students for their hard work and dedication, as well as their demonstrated excellence in engineering.”

A panel of judges chose the following Capstone Design Competition prize winners for best innovative design (select the links below to read the project descriptions):

First prize ($500)

Second prize ($350)

Third prize ($150)
