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

Student examining data Explore your options in your generic first year, before committing to an area of focus, to ensure you find your fit in the engineering world.

This option is intended for those who are undecided on which Engineering program they want to take. Prior to year 2, you're required to apply to change to one of the following Engineering programs:*

  • Automotive Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Manufacturing Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Mechatronics Engineering
  • Software Engineering

*Changing programs is competitive; admission is not guaranteed to your program of choice and you may be placed in another Engineering program if you do not meet the requirements. 

 

Learning environment

Students have access to new, modern buildings, libraries and innovative labs including: 

  • ACE Climatic Wind Tunnel
  • Clean Energy Research Laboratory (CERL)
  • Energy Systems and Nuclear Science Research Centre (ERC)
  • Ontario Power Generation (OPG) Engineering Building
  • Partners for the Advancement of Collaborative Engineering Education (PACE) laboratories

Admissions

Admissions


Current Ontario secondary school students must complete the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) with six 4U or 4M credits including English (ENG4U) with a minimum grade of 60 per cent, Advanced Functions (MHF4U), Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U), Chemistry (SCH4U), and Physics (SPH4U). In addition, a combined minimum 70 per cent average in prerequisite math and science courses is required, with no grade below 60 per cent. Applicants with credentials from outside Ontario should visit the Admissions section.

Note: Admission is competitive. The specific average or standing required for admission varies from year to year. Students are selected by taking into consideration a wide range of criteria including school marks, distribution of subjects taken, and performance in subjects relevant to the academic program. Possession of the minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance. Preference will be given to applicants with the best qualifications.
