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.

Integrated Mathematics and Computer Science is a new program at Ontario Tech that focuses on where mathematics and computer science converge.

General information

The technology industry has long benefited from trained talents in Mathematics and Computer Science.  In recent years, there has been a steady increase in demand for individuals with skill sets that combine the two disciplines. New for the 2021-2022 academic year, the Integrated Mathematics and Computer Science program focuses on where these two disciplines converge, and the practical application of computer knowledge and mathematical principles. 

Through the Integrated Mathematics and Computer Science program, you’ll develop a strong foundation in both Computer Science and Applied Mathematics, with access to courses taught by area experts in both fields.  Building upon a comprehensive and integrated curriculum of mathematics, computer science, and statistics, you'll learn to solve complex and socially relevant problems using tools in computer programming and mathematical analysis in an immersive and experiential learning environment. 

The curriculum offers flexibility in upper-year courses, tailored for a wide range of career trajectories and interests. Through program-specific application and integration courses, you’ll engage in experiential learning through self-directed group projects inspired by industry problems and initiatives. 

Please note: Offers of admission to this program may be made only after the Ministry of Colleges and Universities has approved the program.

Science and Management

If you're interested in managerial and leadership roles, consider applying for the five-year Bachelor of Science and Management (Honours) program in your upper years of study. Graduates gain a solid foundation in the key functional areas of business and management, including finance, accounting, operations, project management and marketing.

There is a wealth of opportunities for science graduates in industry, government, and in areas of applied science. The combination of a science degree, and business and management education, will give an added advantage to graduates in establishing careers within these practical fields.

Experiential learning

A five-year Co-operative Education option is available; it satisfies the guidelines of the Canadian Association for Co-operative Education . The program combines an Honours Bachelor of Science program with embedded work terms. The co-op option gives you opportunities to apply your classroom and lab concepts to real-world situations and help you gain valuable, relevant work experience to promote networking and lifelong career success.
 
Co-op work terms give you the opportunity to earn a competitive salary that will help pay for your university degree, and the work experience to help clarify your career objectives. More importantly, a co-op degree gives you a distinct advantage that will assist your prospects for full-time employment after graduation or for being readily accepted into graduate school to pursue further studies. Studies have shown that university students who graduate with a co-op degree have lower debt loads, are employed faster and have higher starting salaries.
 
We are committed to providing you with outstanding opportunities to work with today’s highest-quality employers in business and industry. Our university has developed strong partnerships with leading employers in Durham Region and beyond to allow you to connect with experts in the field and gain

Career opportunities
