Mohawk College of Applied Arts and Technology is a public university that has been around since 1966. It is in the city of Hamilton in the Canadian province of Ontario. It is part of the Association of Community Colleges of Canada, and the Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities has given it money and approved it (ACCC).
Four campuses in the Hamilton area offer programs: the Stoney Creek Campus, the Fennell Campus (Hamilton Mountain), the Institute for Applied Health Sciences at McMaster University, and the City School (Eva Rothwell Centre). At Fennell, the David Braley Athletic and Recreation Centre has a gym, an indoor track, a fitness center, and a studio that can be used for many different things. It also has places for meetings and social gatherings, as well as places to play beach volleyball and basketball outside. At the college’s massage therapy and health facility, you can get massages and health services, learn about health, and get medical care. At either Social Inc. or the Language and Culture Centre, you can meet new people, learn about other cultures, and take part in a wide range of events and activities.
The college library system is made up of three libraries: Cummings (Fennell), IAHS (McMaster), and Stoney Creek Campus Library. All three libraries have TECH BARS to make it easier to use technology for teaching, research, and creative projects. The Digital Creativity Center and Collaboratories are other places where you can use digital technology to explore, make things, work together, and learn by doing. For its 170 on-campus residences, the college offers cooking, laundry, cleaning, and an online maintenance app. Students can eat in the cafeteria and watch movies or play video games in the recreation centers on campus. The college’s five colleges offer programs in business, health sciences, communication, media, entertainment, community service, engineering and technology, preparatory studies, and urban studies.
The school offers more than 145 non-credit courses, as well as more than 100 degree, diploma, and certificate programs and a wide range of part-time and apprenticeship opportunities. The college’s very well-trained staff gives career-focused education in the classroom, on field trips to local businesses, and through internship and apprenticeship programs. More than 3,000 students take part in co-op work terms every year. These terms can last anywhere from four to sixteen months. A student-run radio station (101.5 The Hawk) and online newspaper are also run by the university (ignitenews.ca).
Some of the more than 120,000 Mohawk College graduates include Dominic Agostino (politician), Annette Hamm (Canadian reporter and news anchor), Jillian Barberie (actress, TV and radio host), Brad Clark (politician), Master T (former MuchMusic VJ, TV and radio host), Alex Pierson (Canadian broadcaster), and Joey Muha (YouTube Content Creator and Professional Drummer). Members of the Alumni Association can get a number of awards and special opportunities. The Graduates Association also plans many events throughout the year to celebrate the achievements of former students and make it easier for current students and former alumni to talk to each other.
