"My experience at UOIT has been academically rewarding. As a student enrolled in the Digital Media specialization, I have had the opportunity to learn the latest technical skills, such as development for mobile devices and interactive web-based applications. The small class sizes enable students to closely interact with instructors. Professors at UOIT offer enriching research positions to students, which has personally led me to pursue Graduate Studies."

"My time studying at UOIT remains a key component of who I am. The Computer Science program has taught me to fundamentally approach, evaluate and solve problems. The interaction with the professors and their sincere desire for my success was truly invaluable. As a direct result of their encouragement, I completed a 16-month work term at IBM. While there, I was able to apply and build upon what I had been taught. With both classroom and related work experience, I was able to secure a permanent position with a company when I graduate. Overall, I feel my time at UOIT was a worthwhile investment for both personal and professional development."

"I was drawn to UOIT as it is a technology-driven university offering programs to match the technology-rich society in which we live today. UOIT continues to provide education that is current, and I have had the opportunity to work closely and on a personal level with a number of professors. This is one of the reasons I have chosen to continue my education here at UOIT beyond the undergraduate level."
