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 in discussion in front of three large screens full of data The UNENE Graduate Diploma in Nuclear Engineering is offered jointly between Ontario Tech University and McMaster University.
The University Network of Excellence in Nuclear Engineering (UNENE) Graduate Diploma in Nuclear Engineering is offered jointly between Ontario Tech University and McMaster University. The graduate diploma will allow students to broaden their knowledge and enhance their core skills without the commitment of a full master’s degree. Only four courses are required for the graduate diploma, as opposed to the 10 required in the UNENE Master of Engineering (MEng) program. Courses will be offered using the same model as the MEng -- four alternate weekends with the option for distance education.
