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.

Dreaming of becoming an engineer? A recent international survey ranks two Ontario Tech University Engineering programs among the best in their subject area within Ontario.

ShanghaiRanking’s 2020 Global Ranking of Academic Subjects placed Ontario Tech’s Mechanical Engineering program among the top five mechanical engineering programs in Ontario. Meanwhile, the university’s Electrical Engineering program ranked among the province’s top 10 electrical engineering programs.

ShanghaiRanking examines more than 4,000 global universities for research quality, extent of international collaboration, and recognitions received by faculty members in a given academic subject. It then ranks the universities in 54 subjects across natural sciences, engineering, life sciences, medical sciences and social sciences. Universities meeting a minimum threshold of research publications are included in the survey.

ShanghaiRanking began publishing Academic Ranking of World Universities by academic subjects in 2009.
