Seneca Polytechnic

Seneca believes in creating great student experiences that provide enriching learning opportunities — both inside and outside of the classroom. This includes immersing yourself in the workplace as part of a work term or field placement or expanding your skillset by studying abroad. These enriching experiences will give you an edge when you enter the workforce or pursue further studies.

Top reasons to study here

  • Some academic programs include field placements that are typically unpaid but provide an opportunity to gain essential experience in the workplace.
  • Studying in another country can be an incredible experience with new environments, fascinating cultures and life-long friends.
  • Co-ops and works-terms will give you a chance to put into practise the skills and knowledge you have gained in the classroom.


The Seneca of today was a long time coming. When the College first opened its doors in 1967, classes were offered at a number of sites including a former Woolworth store and a renovated factory. Ground was turned in 1968 to create Seneca’s first permanent location on Finch Avenue East at Highway 404.
