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.

Each March, the country’s engineering community hosts more than 500 events to inspire the next generation of problem-solvers and showcase how rewarding an engineering career can be. 

The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science (FEAS) at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology has much to celebrate in parallel with National Engineering Month in Canada. Through its market-oriented accredited programs, co-ops and internship programs, international exchanges, placements and student clubs and organizations, FEAS is preparing young engineers to excel in the 21st-century workplace and contribute to society.

FEAS researchers are making significant research contributions in basic scientific discoveries and uncovering innovative solutions to address local, national and global issues. In addition to patented solutions, faculty research activities are disseminated in international conferences and journals and contribute to raise the reputation of engineering at the university.  

Recent FEAS research patents (since 2014)

  • Internally supported modular and non-modular linked structures (Scott Nokleby, PhD and Remon Pop-Iliev, PhD; Canadian patent)
  • Method and system for high-speed power source transfer (Tarlochan Sidhu, PhD; U.S. patent)
