Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Amin Vafakhah alumni profile

Amin Vafakhah  | Class of 2014

Master of Engineering Management

After receiving his Bachelor of Engineering degree, Amin followed the advice of a friend who recommended he consider the Master of Engineering Management program of the Ontario Tech University.

"This program was a natural fit for me," said Amin, "because it combines management and engineering, as well as the hard and the soft skills."  He recently graduated and says the courses he took provided useful knowledge and techniques he will be able to use in his career in "the amazing field of engineering management."

Amin also has experience as a Civil Laboratory Technologist and a Junior Quality Control/Quality Assurance Engineer with MNA Engineering Ltd., a geotechnical, environmental engineering and construction material testing consulting firm. He also completed a co-op placement as an Assistant Project Coordinator for a construction company.

Amin credits Ontario Tech with opening "a broad range of academic and career opportunities in my life."  He's looking forward to building a career that utilizes his skills and knowledge in civil quality assurance engineering, plant engineering and project coordination.
