We are thrilled that you are joining the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science (FEAS), and are confident that you will enjoy the program and our innovative university environment. The First-Year Engineering Advisor, Theeben Jegatheesan and Brittany McFarlane, is your main point of contact this year. In future years, you will be assisted by the upper-year advisors of the Academic Advising Team. We are here to assist and to support your success!

The Academic Advising Team will address concerns related to all aspects of student life – academic or personal – as well as:
  • Help you register for your classes
  • Find you an Engineering Peer Mentor
  • Explain the important student forms and student policies
  • Guide you through the First-Year Engineering Success Program


  • We will only communicate with you using your official UOITnet account ( email address)

  • Make sure you regularly check your email address, as this is the official means of communication between students and the university. Vital information is communicated to you through this account, including registration information and details of academic standing.
