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.

Ontario Tech University’s consistent strength in Engineering is reinforced again this year in an influential survey of global universities.

The latest data from the U.S. News and World Report shows Ontario Tech ranking competitively in the field of Engineering. In some cases, Ontario Tech places ahead of many long-established university peers. Ontario Tech holds its place as the No. 3 school in Ontario (out of 13) for Engineering and No. 7 nationally (out of 31).

Energy and Fuels is also a major sub-category strength for Ontario Tech, with a ranking of No. 4 in in Ontario and Canada. The university demonstrated particularly powerful numbers for regional and global research reputation, as well as citation impact for journal publications of new research discoveries.

  • The 2023 U.S. News and World Report lists only the world's top 1,750 universities (see methodology and Ontario Tech’s profile summary).

“These tremendous results reflect Ontario Tech’s momentum as a key player in education and the discovery of knowledge. Our engineering programs are dedicated to providing the highest quality education for the next generation of industry-ready engineers, armed with the skills and knowledge to forge a future society. The community and the world are clearly taking notice of Ontario Tech’s compelling story and our dedication to excellence in all of our undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs.”
