Against the wind: Bermudian students visit campus, learn about sailing physics

Sailing with the wind is easy—as long as your sails are at a right angle to the wind, the wind pushes on them and you just coast along. But how do you make your boat move forward against the wind? Students from two secondary schools in Bermuda recently enjoyed a fun afternoon at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology learning about this as they explored sailing physics and engineering.

Radiation expert recognized for distinguished achievement

Ed Waller, PhD, Professor, Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science is the 2017 winner of the Canadian Radiation Protection Association’s (CRPA) Distinguished Achievement Award for outstanding contributions to knowledge, practice and advancement of the field of radiation protection.

University President and Vice-Chancellor Tim McTiernan speaks at launch of the City of Oshawa's Teaching City Initiative (Robert McLaughlin Gallery, June 5, 2017).

City of Oshawa, educational partners launch ‘Teaching City’ Initiative

The City of Oshawa, along with local and regional partners, will develop the City as a ‘living laboratory’ to address and study complex urban issues and identify opportunities. As a nimble mid-sized municipality that is part of one of North America’s largest urban areas, Oshawa is uniquely positioned to take on this role.

Students showcase their research to donors and partners

Imagine donning a headset, opening your eyes and being transported to an operating room ready to conduct knee surgery. No, it’s not a dream; it’s another way University of Ontario Institute of Technology students are transforming modern training environments through virtual reality.

UOIT student reflects upon competing at Rio 2016 Paralympic Games

First-year University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) student Mitchell Chase (Pickering, Ontario) may have missed out on Orientation activities, but the Nuclear Engineering student had a good reason. Chase was on a different kind of starting line in early September: a starting line in South America.
