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.

  • Expanding your horizons

    Placement in the internship course affords you the opportunity to combine your knowledge and application of theory with real-world experiences that will equip you as future employees. The intention of the course is to:

    • Allow you to deliver and build on fresh ideas as forward-thinkers.
    • Add value and contribution to your overall learning experience.
    • Assist in producing highly productive and potential future leaders.
    • Enhance the your academic study through meaningful work experience;
    • Expose organizations to the benefit of your training in the use of the latest technologies 
    • Let you explore the various management issues you may encounter in their field.

    Internships not only give you an opportunity to apply classroom concepts to the challenges of organizational life, but also helps you gain valuable and relevant work experience to promote networking and lifelong career success.

  • Changing how you think

    Many of our students got started in their careers by completing an internship employment contract. Faculty members may provide links to various placement opportunities, or you may secure an employer who meets the criteria as prescribed by our faculty.

    Open to students who achieve an overall GPA of 2.3 GPA, internship equates to:

    • A minimum of 560 hours of progressive business and management experience.
    • A minimum of 16 consecutive weeks of employment.
    • Paid, full-time wages as stipulated in sponsoring business’ contract over a specified time.

    Note: upon successful completion of this course, you may elect not to take our Edge – Capstone Study Project. 

  • Success depends on you

    Successful work placement completion requires both a verbal and written final report, which will result in the intern receiving a mark and three credits toward the Honours Bachelor of Commerce and Bachelor of Information Technology degree requirements.

    Participating employers have the opportunity to transform motivated learners into the thinkers and achievers of tomorrow, and at the same time provide you with valuable mentoring.
