Unique learning and research environment

Learning occurs through:

  • classroom lectures
  • computer simulations
  • independent research
  • laboratories
  • tutorials

Learning and teaching take place through technology-enriched learning, where you will use a laptop computer with software integrated into your courses, in a wireless campus environment.

UOIT’s ultra-modern four-storey Science Building features state-of-the art laboratories and classrooms. Some of the laboratory equipment used by our faculty’s undergraduate students is so innovative that it is not used by students at other universities until graduate school!

Undergraduate and graduate facilities include:

  • The Laboratory for Advanced User Interfaces and Virtual Reality, which provides a range of specialized equipment for 3D graphics, user interface and haptics research.
  • The Aquatic Toxicology Lab, a leading-edge 20,000-litre wet lab.
  • The Computer Science Lab, which houses workstations, servers and other equipment including embedded wireless environmental sensors.
  • The Crime Scene House, an actual house retrofitted with mock crime scenes and used in the Forensic Science program. It was the first such facility in Ontario.
