The University of Ontario Institute of Technology is a unique and vibrant place, rooted in its community and powered by its people. We are driven by a dynamic, student-centred vision for 21st-century teaching and research. Our history is short but proud, and is inextricably linked to the dedication of our founders - the scores of volunteers in Durham Region and Northumberland County who shared our vision, mission and values. Our future growth will depend on attracting talented individuals with a similar commitment to creating a better tomorrow through our students. We invite you to join us in building one of the world´s great universities.

As a rapidly growing centre of industry and innovation, Durham Region long cherished the dream of establishing its own university. The number of residents in the region is expected to reach nearly 1 million by 2021. Yet for years, Durham was the only high-population area in the province without its own university.

For more than 10 years, prominent figures in the community worked to realize their vision for a student-focused institution dedicated to great teaching, groundbreaking research, and the use of leading-edge learning technology. By initially preparing students for critically needed, knowledge-intensive careers, the university would ensure bright futures for its graduates, and generate economic growth for Durham Region, Northumberland County, and the entire province.

In one of the earliest efforts in Ontario to combine university and college studies in one location, the Durham University Centre was created in 1996 on the campus that the university now shares with Durham College. The university courses offered at the centre were taught by professors from both Trent University and York University. But the community never abandoned its desire for a made-in-Durham university.

On a historic day for Durham Region and Northumberland County - May 9, 2001 - the government announced plans for the first brand new university in Ontario in 40 years, and earmarked $60 million in startup funds through Ontario SuperBuild Corporation.

An operations centre was set up next to the president´s office, where 11 teams, working seven days a week, produced a to-do list of 856 tasks and hundreds of sub-tasks. Team members toured top institutions across North America to study best practices.

The university officially came into being on June 27, 2002, with the legislature´s passage of Bill 109, Schedule O, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology Act, 2002. It welcomed its first class of 947 students in September 2003. As Ontario´s only laptop-based university, UOIT uses the latest technology to enhance learning and give students a competitive edge in tomorrow´s workplace.

The university´s short history is already marked by tremendous accomplishment, and an exciting future lies ahead. Full-time enrolment is expected to reach about 6,500 by 2010. The university´s first two academic buildings and a beautiful new library - all designed by the award-winning firm of Diamond and Schmitt Architects Inc. - were completed by the fall of 2004. Three more academic buildings are slated to open by 2006.

The university will eventually expand across Conlin Road on to land donated by the estate of industrialist E.P. Taylor. The gently rolling farmland once nurtured world-class, champion horses, like Northern Dancer. In the years ahead, it will give rise to the leaders of tomorrow.
