Top marks for UOIT Print

Oshawa-based University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) received an excellent review with the recently issued findings of the Globe and Mail's Canadian University Report and Maclean's 20th annual University Rankings.

"We are very pleased with this year’s results,” said Dr. Ronald Bordessa, UOIT president. “The opinion of our
students is a true reflection of UOIT’s solid reputation as an innovative research-intensive university that provides quality education. Our faculty and staff are committed to preparing our students for the future by providing them with the real-world skills needed to grow the knowledge economy and make a positive impact on society.”

The university ranked 13th out of 22 in the Maclean's Primarily Undergraduate category due in part to first-place rankings in the Investments in Student Services and Library Acquisitions categories. The university also remained in fourth place in the Medical/Science category and moved up to fourth in Total Research Dollars.

UOIT's marks in the Globe's Canadian University Report are equally impressive, when measured against its enrolment group (4,000 to 12,000). Most notably, the university scored an A for Campus Technology and Class Size, followed by an A-minus for Ease of Course Registration, Recreation and Athletics, and Buildings and Facilities.

The Globe report features the opinions of more than 35,000 undergraduate students who participated in the survey of more than 100 questions.

The more than 7,400 undergraduate and graduate students at UOIT have access to a high-tech, wireless campus that is home to state-of-the art buildings and labs equipped with the very latest in industry technology, materials and equipment. They study in career-focused undergraduate and graduate programs, many of which are unique in Ontario and Canada.
