Located in the eastern Greater Toronto Area, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology has grown out of a bold, ambitious vision: to take on the grand challenges we face as a society, and find solutions to meet and exceed tomorrow's needs.

By teaching students new approaches to problem solving along with innovative uses of technology, our commitment to scholarship produces new types of graduates: highly engaged citizen leaders with an entrepreneurial spirit; people prepared to excel in the modern workplace, and ready to lead their peers.

Areas of study include:

Our faculty experts engage with more than 300 industry partners to develop unique programs that incorporate:

  • Program-specific and industry-current software.
  • Practical, hands-on experience in a real-world setting.

In 2013-2014, more than four out of five graduating students participated in work-integrated learning through opportunities such as co-ops, internships and practicums.

The university houses more than 70 specialized research laboratories and facilities. These facilities show our commitment to attracting leading scholars and creating excellent learning experiences.

The university wants to grow into an even more innovative mixed-use, vibrant community hub. To reach this goal we are creating a Campus Master Plan to develop 190 acres directly north of the campus. This expansion will establish the new classrooms, laboratories and infrastructure required to provide students, professors and researchers with the space they need to build Canada's competitiveness while creating an exciting and rewarding educational experience.
