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.

In each program of study in the Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science there are a select number of electives that students may choose in order to enhance and enrich their learning experience.  The number and type of electives varies from program to program.

Liberal studies electives are generally selected from the social science and humanities disciplines in order to provide breadth to FESNS major areas of study, whereas a complementary studies elective could be from a selection of approved business courses in addition to social science and humanities courses.  

If there is an elective course you wish to take that does not appear on these lists, please complete the FESNS elective request form and submit it to the academic advising office for approval.
