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.

Computational Science and Visualization Laboratory

Through the Canada Foundation for Innovation new opportunities program, a subset of faculty members involved in the Master of Science in Modelling and Computational Science program have established a Computational Science and Visualization Laboratory. The laboratory includes:

  • One SGI Fuel Visual workstation.
  • Six all-purpose dual-Opteron 250 IBM A Pro workstations.
  • A central data storage system.
  • The necessary infrastructure.

The SGI workstation is a specialized machine ideal for the visualization of 3D scientific data. The IBM workstations are used to run software such as MATLAB, MAPLE, and FEMLAB, which are indispensable tools for:

  • Preliminary investigation.
  • Problem formulation.
  • Less intensive visualization.
  • Complete analysis of moderately sized problems.
