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

Students in class This program ensures graduates possess a deep familiarity with the technologies associated with energy systems and various technological options, as well as the skills to continually assess new energy technologies and changes to energy systems.

The Bachelor of Technology (BTech) in Sustainable Energy Systems program ensures graduates possess a deep familiarity with the technologies associated with energy systems and various technological options, as well as the skills to continually assess new energy technologies and changes to energy systems. Graduates will also possess business and communication skills that will help them put their technical knowledge to use. Graduates will be well versed in the strengths and limitations of various energy supply options, which depend on local and regional conditions. Graduates will also develop a thorough understanding of regulatory and political aspects of energy supply.

Ontario Tech takes pride in the emphasis on experiential learning and their well-established relationships with industry partners. I toured the powerhouse at the Pickering Nuclear Generating Station (NGS), BWXT's Fuel Fabrication Facility in Peterborough and the Western Waste Management Facility on the Bruce Power nuclear site, to name a few. I am proud to have been part of a program that has given me a great deal of insight into the industry. I am currently pursing my Master of Science in Space Radiation Shielding and feel well prepared thanks to Ontario Tech.
