As of 2014 more than 1000 faculty instruct roughly 12,500 full-time students, 4,000 apprentices, 46,000 continuing education registrants, and 1,800 international students studying in more than 130 post-secondary and apprenticeship programs.

Mohawk College was established during the formation of Ontario's college system in 1966. The school was founded in 1967 as part of a provincial initiative to create many such institutions to provide career-oriented advanced diploma, diploma, and certificate courses, as well as continuing education programs to Ontario communities.


Why Mohawk?

Become Future Ready at Mohawk.

Mohawk is a leader among Ontario's colleges. Deeply rooted in our community and the demands of the present, we have a global perspective that addresses the needs of the future.

We are transforming the way we deliver the educational experience.

We've redefined the meaning of campus-to meet our students' educational needs and increase collaboration with our partners.

We've honed our expertise in the technologies shaping the world-artificial intelligence, robotics, augmented and virtual reality, biotechnology, digital health, and cybersecurity to name a few.

We are inspiring students to be the sustainability leaders of tomorrow.

We're the first Ontario college to get a STARS® Gold Rating for sustainability achievements from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).

We have forward-looking spaces that reflect our core values of excellence and innovation.

The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation is a unique 'teaching tool', the largest net-zero institutional building in Canada, with 96,000 square feet on seven levels with access for students on all. It exceeds LEED® Platinum standards and generates as much or more energy as it consumes annually.

We strive to ensure an inclusive environment for everyone.

As an inclusive college, Mohawk benefits from the diversity of thoughts, experiences, skills, and talents of our students, faculty, staff and administrators. We are focused on creating an environment that reflects all identities, where every student belongs, is welcome and has a voice.

We have an impressive track record as a community leader.

Our unique City School by Mohawk breaks down barriers to education and employment by bringing the college directly into Hamilton neighbourhoods to offer free courses, training and employment services. The credits students earn at City School apply to Mohawk academic and pre-apprenticeship programs.
