UNIVERSITY OF ONTARIO INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

UOIT – A UNIVERSITY DEGREE WITH AN EDGE
The University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) is not your traditional university. In fact, since opening its doors in 2003, UOIT has received accolades from students and employers alike, for providing a leading-edge education that ensures graduates will fill leadership roles in the jobs of tomorrow. At UOIT you’ll find everything you need to succeed in the new economy as a next-generation professional. From sustainable energy, to the development of clean and green vehicles, to furthering research on environmental factors in human cancer and HIV/AIDS prevention and more, UOIT students study in career-focused undergraduate and graduate programs, many of which are unique in Ontario and Canada. That means when you graduate, you will do so with the real-world skills essential to helping Ontario take its position as a global leader in the years to come. Because UOIT is Ontario’s first laptop-based university, our graduates find their high-tech skills give them a competitive edge when entering the marketplace. Plus, our commitment to research excellence means students have the opportunity to pursue innovative research that will impact society by addressing socio-economic issues of provincial, national and global significance. We also make it easier than ever before to turn a college diploma into a degree. Thanks to agreements with several partner institutions, we offer college graduates advanced standing in a number of degree programs, including Commerce, Communication, Criminology and Justice, Health Sciences, Information Technology and Legal Studies. But don’t take our word for it; ask our students. Through independent surveys such as the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), the Canadian University Survey Consortium and others, students consistently place UOIT at the head of the class when it comes to their overall satisfaction, our technology base, interaction with professors, opportunities to collaborate with their peers and others on campus and more. We’re proud to earn high marks from our students and their employers. All of this and we’re right here in the GTA, with plenty of room to grow and room for you too!

MOBILE LEARNING
You’ve never experienced education like this before. UOIT’s national award-winning mobile learning environment allows you to connect with your professors and peers any time, anywhere – and puts you one step ahead come graduation. UOIT is a leader among North American universities in implementing and using course- and industry-specific software for laptop learning. You will receive a high-end laptop at the beginning of your studies and your professors will develop sophisticated course content using a powerful campus-wide online learning management system. One of the greatest advantages of the mobile learning program is that all students have equal access to the same technology, resources and services. Inside or outside of the classroom, you can make quality computerbased presentations, conduct Internet research, work electronically on your own or with other students and have seamless access to all online resources. An annual mobile-computing fee covers the use of your hardware learning tools, extensive technical support, virus protection, high-speed Internet, printing services, insurance and a wide range of program-specific software. In addition, all laptops are refreshed with appropriate software each year and upgraded every two years. We’re committed to giving you even more value for your education and your investment in technology while studying at UOIT. www.uoit.ca/mobile
