University of Toronto Aerospace Team (UTAT)
Swagelok Central Ontario also supports UTAT's Rocketry Team. This team competes in the exciting Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition (IREC). The emphasis of the IREC is for
student design and construction of as many parts of the rocket as possible, including propulsion, structures, avionics, recovery, and payloads. UTAT competes in the Basic Category, where the
objective is to send a 10lb payload to an altitude of 10,000ft, and have it recovered safety. Extra points are awarded for student built components, and reusability.
Our knowledgeable associates have engaged the team with training and product support with a focus on safety and reliability.

University Formula SAE Racing Teams
Swagelok Central Ontario supports the efforts of future engineers through the sharing of knowledge and high quality Swagelok products. Our involvement with the Formula SAE Racing Teams at Ryerson University, the University of Toronto and Carleton University in Ottawa has been mutually beneficial. Our knowledgeable associates have had the opportunity to teach students how to safely and properly install and handle fluid system products. The students have given us an inside peek at their processes and how their teams meet the challenge to deliver a high performing race car every year.
