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

Engineering students working with a computer. Energy Engineering is an interdisciplinary program and one of the broadest engineering disciplines that covers various engineering fields including electrical, mechanical and nuclear.

The energy industry has demonstrated increased demand to include environmentally-conscious energy sources that focus on the efficient use of energy systems, as well as energy security and reliability. In this program, students will learn different aspects of energy systems including hydrogen, electrical, nuclear, renewable and energy storage.

If you're interested in applying to the Energy Engineering program without co-op, apply via the Ontario Universities' Application Centre (OUAC) using OUAC code DER. 

If you're interested in applying to the Energy Engineering (Co-op) program, apply via OUAC code DCX. 

Foundation year

All Engineering students begin with a common foundation year, regardless of the program of study. During the foundation year, you will learn about the various Engineering programs available. 

Engineering and Management

There is a need for engineers with management skills. Complement the technical studies of your Engineering program with business and management courses by pursuing the five-year Bachelor of Engineering and Management (Honours) program.

Women in Engineering

A multi-year support program to help female Engineering students explore opportunities and careers, gain experience in the workforce, make a successful transition to a career in engineering and find lifelong success in a professional engineering career.  View more information about our Women in Engineering program.

Women for STEM scholarships available for eligible female students

Learning environment

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

  • Energy Systems and Nuclear Science Research Centre (ERC)
  • Ontario Power Generation (OPG) Engineering Building
  • Software and Informatics Research Center (SIRC)
  • Jeffery Boyce Engineering Innovation and Design Studio

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.

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.
