University of Ontario Institute of Technology

UOIT's innovative and unique undergraduate and graduate programs are designed to meet your interests and career aspirations, along with the market-driven requirements of employers. When you graduate, you will have the critical thinking, innovative research and technological skills demanded by the world's leading employers.



For more than a decade, prominent figures in the community developed a vision for a student-focused institution dedicated to great teaching, groundbreaking research, and the use of leading-edge learning technology. The dream was to build a university that would offer programs to prepare students for critically needed, knowledge-intensive careers.


Every UOIT research project is built on three guiding principles: excellence, innovation, and societal impact within Canada, and/or internationally. Our research addresses current and future economic and social needs. With this in mind, our strategic research themes are:

  • Advanced manufacturing for 21st-century innovation
  • Education for the 21st century
  • Energy and the environment
  • Human health and community wellness
  • Information and communication technology and informatics
  • Life sciences and biotechnology


We offer challenging work in a dynamic and diverse workplace, supported by highly dedicated faculty and staff. We believe that in order to develop graduates who will thrive in the 21st-century workplace, we must be a 21st-century workplace.
