Mohawk College of Applied Arts and Technology is among the top colleges in Canada for applied research. Students work alongside industry partners and faculty on dozens of projects. The college is home to three research centres (which are collectively known as IDEAWORKS): the mHealth and eHealth Development and Innovation Centre, the Additive Manufacturing Innovation Centre and the Energy and Power Innovation Centre.
The college offers a range of degree, diploma, certificate, upgrading, continuing education and apprenticeship programs in areas such as health, community services, business, technology, skilled trades and communications. It has two campuses in Hamilton and one in Stoney Creek. Suite-style student dorms are available at the main campus in Hamilton.
The Mohawk—McMaster Institute for Applied Health Sciences is the first facility in the country to house university and college health education programs under one roof. The school recently opened the Joyce Centre for Partnership and Innovation, the second building in Canada to receive a zero-carbon certification for energy efficiency.
Indigenous youth can spend two weeks during the summer at Mohawk through Project Pathfinder, a mix of college education and cultural awareness. Mohawk offers its Indigenous students support services which include academic advice, peer tutoring and Elder guidance.
