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.

Overview

two students at two monitors Learn the ins and outs of the worlds of both business and IT, ensuring you'll be a major asset to employers as you pursue your Bachelor of IT.

The program will develop your skills in data analytics, information systems, change management, and data security.

This major is consistent with the university’s mandate and the Faculty of Business and Information Technology’s priority to be market-relevant. The focus on informatics integrates with research being conducted in the Informatics Research Institute and in associated incubators. It is a direct response to market demand for professionals with domain-specific knowledge and ICT-related skills. According to Statistics Canada (2008), the labour market for professionals with business informatics skills was an IT occupation that continued to thrive through the recession due to industry need. 

Students completing this program will qualify for the Certified Business Technology Manager (CBTM) designation from Canadian Coalition for Tomorrow's ICT (Information Communication Technology) Skills (CCICT), once they obtain sufficient work experience.

 


Ontario Tech is a great place to develop knowledge on a variety of different topics across many different fields. This program covers the full spectrum of the game-development process, from conception to implementation, while also creatively integrating an indie studio feel with the Game Development Workshop. Having all of the hardware and software provided to you for all of your classes is also a great convenience.
