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.

Our master’s programs in Nuclear Engineering are comprised of the following two fields:

  • Nuclear Power; and
  • Radiological and Health Physics. 

Graduates of a master’s level degree program in Nuclear Engineering must be competent in a wide range of disciplines that impinge on the safe and reliable operation of the many and varied systems that comprise:

  • Nuclear power plants;
  • Radiological equipment; and
  • Related facilities.

You must understand the complex interrelationships between humans, non-human biota and the physical, chemical, economic, and social components of the environment. The program provides the depth and breadth of knowledge necessary for practicing professionals in nuclear engineering. Under the guidance of a research supervisor and a multidisciplinary team of scientific and engineering faculty, you will have the opportunity to engage in a comprehensive study of particular problems that emphasize theory and/or experimentation.

Our PhD program offers the following two fields of study:

  • Nuclear Power and Energy Applications; and
  • Radiological and Health Physics.
