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.

Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science

The programs offered in the Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science have been created in consultation with key industry representatives in the fields of energy and radiation, to meet the many challenges and growing employment demand in these fields. Many of the programs in this faculty are unique in Canada.

Applications that involve energy systems in general and nuclear power plants in particular, benefit many aspects of our lives. Society depends on qualified people to design and develop new techniques, operate and maintain existing equipment, and to ensure that the benefits of energy technologies are applied as widely as possible.

Students will benefit from the university’s technology-enriched learning environment, which provides technically enhanced learning and teaching, including computer simulation of nuclear, fossil and alternative energy systems.

First-year Engineering Success Program  provides first-year engineering students who need extra time to adapt to university with an opportunity, before the start of second year, to complete first-year courses for which they have not obtained credit, to upgrade their grade point average and academic standing, and to improve their preparation for studies in subsequent years.

Faculty and staff at Ontario Tech University come from diverse academic backgrounds and are excited to share their knowledge and life experiences with students. To view a list of Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science faculty and staff members visit

The faculty’s research includes nuclear reactor design and safety analysis, nuclear power plant design and simulation, safety-critical digital instrumentation and control systems, reliability engineering, human-machine interface and uncertainty analysis, radiation biophysics, dosimetry and microdosimetry, environmental effects of radiation, health and medical physics, radioactive waste management, electrochemical and corrosion effects.

The Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science offers Master of Applied Science and Master of Engineering programs in Nuclear Engineering, graduate diploma programs, and a PhD in Nuclear Engineering.
