TORONTO: A new partnership between Seneca College and the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) will allow qualified Seneca students to seamlessly pursue a range of degree programs at UOIT without having to repeat relevant courses.
Students from select diploma programs can apply the credits they earned at Seneca towards 14 different UOIT programs including honours undergraduate degrees in Arts, Commerce, Information Technology, Health Sciences and Science. Career options include adult education, criminology, legal studies, networking, information technology security, game development, nuclear power, biological science and nursing.
“We are happy to partner with Seneca to increase the number of diploma-to-degree pathways for students,” said UOIT President Tim McTiernan. “This articulation further supports UOIT’s commitment to providing unparalleled access to education through multiple pathways to degree completion. We look forward to ongoing collaboration between our two institutions and creating a consistent, flexible and seamless system for our students.”
“This new partnership with UOIT provides qualified Seneca students with more pathways to earn two postsecondary credentials in less time,” said Seneca President David Agnew. “Seneca is the Ontario leader in providing pathways to university and this further demonstrates our commitment to student success by providing new and enriching opportunities.”
Seneca and UOIT are both committed to providing students with career-oriented programs and more diploma-to-degree pathways; this new partnership is a natural match.
The University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) advances the discovery and application of knowledge through a technology-enriched learning environment and innovative programs responsive to the needs of students, and the evolving 21st-century workplace. With more than 9,200 undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in 70 programs delivered by exceptional faculty, UOIT promotes social engagement, fosters critical thinking and integrates outcomes-based learning experiences inside and outside the classroom. UOIT’s commitment to accelerating economic growth and social innovation is realized through research collaborations with leading organizations such as Ontario Power Generation, The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and the Durham Regional Police Service.
