Hamilton, Ontario (PRWEB) September 29, 2012
The Fall 2012 enrollment of first-year full-time semester students was at its highest in Mohawk College history, totaling to 6,774 students and reaching a 7 per cent increase compared to last year. The overall enrollment of all full time students saw a similar increase of 6 per cent in the last year, leaving Mohawk with a healthy full time student body of 13,048 students.
With a robust catalogue of full-time programs and course offerings, Mohawk is continuing to grow as a leading college in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. Currently, Mohawk’s full time programs fall under seven different faculties:
- Business Programs
- Community and Urban Studies Programs
- Engineering Technology Programs
- Health Sciences Programs
- Interdisciplinary Studies Programs
- Media and Entertainment Programs
- Skilled Trades Programs
In addition to the variety of disciplines and majors, Mohawk also offers students a lively and engaging campus experience. In the past year alone Mohawk has dedicated a significant portion of their resources to expand on several initiatives in and around their campuses, including the Fennell Campus Renewal project, which includes the development of the Mohawk Recreation Centre, Multi-Modal Transportation Hub, and Library services.
As enrollment of full time students increases, Mohawk is also holding the top rank for student satisfaction among continuing education students. For the second year in a row, Mohawk received the highest scores in the teaching and learning, general perception and satisfaction categories among their continuing education student body. Also, 86 per cent of continuing education students said they would recommend Mohawk to someone with similar interests.
Mohawk’s continued focus on all student populations by way of diverse programs, research initiatives, student services, and community engagement will likely contribute to a prolonged increase in enrollment and overall student satisfaction.
