October 17, 2016

The University of Ontario Institute of Technology has received $13M from the Canadian and Ontario governments to support its Software and Informatics Research Centre. The centre will reportedly serve as a hub for research in health and business analytics, IT security, networking, gaming, and software engineering. It will also offer access to e-guest lectures and interactions with industries through digital conferencing technology. “The Government of Canada’s investment in our university will help to make Durham Region and Northumberland County a leading hub of new knowledge generation, skills development and economic success,” said UOIT President Tim McTiernan. “It is also an investment in our students—the entrepreneurial young women and men who will be the citizen leaders of tomorrow.” UOIT
