It is my great pleasure to welcome you to UTM, one of the finest universities and campuses in Canada. We are home to over 14,190 students and comprise 17 separate departments, 5 graduate professional programs and several research institutes. Our academic programming is innovative and creative and designed to equip students for the future as we emphasize communication, innovation and sustainability throughout our curriculum. In addition, we pride ourselves on offering students a variety of opportunities to participate in community-engaged learning, internships and research opportunities with faculty on a sustained and regular basis. Our financial support of both undergraduate and graduate students is strong and flexible.
As well as outstanding faculty, staff and students, UTM boasts a beautiful campus set adjacent to the Credit River in a park-like environment. We are, at the same time, fully integrated into the City of Mississauga and the Greater Toronto Area through public transit, bikepaths and, of course, major roads and highways. UTM has a strong and supportive relationship with Mississauga’s public and private organizations and many of our students gain valuable practical experience by applying the knowledge they obtain through their university studies in local agencies and businesses.
The Dean’s office is always open and available to students should they need advice and information about how to make the most of the opportunities available through UTM. As the academic programming continues to respond to student needs, we look forward to getting to know as many students as possible during the upcoming year.
