            Great upcoming university!

            So far my first year experience studying Manufaturing Engineering at UOIT has been great. Most people would shoot it down for being a small university, but it is one of its great advantages in my eyes. It's easier to make friends who you actually can see often because you ACTUALLY pass by them on campus. It's also great that none of my classes are more than a 6-7 minute walk apart. It's an actuall community that HELPS you instead of leaving you to feelllike you're alone fending for yourself.

            Excellent Education

            I started at UOIT in 2009 and since have witnessed very positive growth within the university and the quality of education in which I received. UOIT is well positioned to address new challenges and introduce new techniques with how education is being delivered in 2014. I would highly recommend this university as it is accessible, innovative, forward looking and adaptive to the future of education delivery beyond that of the traditional schools in Ontario.
