The Canadian leader in relevant, career-focused university education, Ryerson offers more than 80 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs throughout five academic Faculties and is the country?s largest provider of university-level continuing education.

Now in the thirteenth year of its full university mandate, Ryerson is maintaining its 58-year tradition of evolving, growing, and diversifying in dynamic response to the needs of the times. Renowned for its professionally targeted, often unique-in-Canada programs, Ryerson has broadened its academic base with the introduction of arts and science degrees to give undergraduates the best of both worlds ? specialized programs for those who have chosen a career path, and broad-spectrum programs for those who wish to explore their options. At the same time, Ryerson is expanding its roster of master?s and doctoral programs to meet the demand for highly qualified personnel in sectors which are critical to Canada ?s economic and social development. Faculty recruitment is proceeding at a rate not seen at Ryerson for many years, fueling a research enterprise that now exceeds $11 million annually. Ryerson recently completed a $210-million campus expansion plan in order to accommodate a constantly growing student population of approximately 20,000 undergraduate students, 750 graduate students, and over 50,000 Continuing Education students.

Distinguished for its hallmark brand of learning in which theory is partnered with real-world application and practice, Ryerson is recognized as one of Canada ?s most innovative universities by business, government, and community leaders.

Ryerson University program is like McMaster?s, all engineering is together 1st year.

Ryerson engs have 6 courses per semester while UT has just 5 courses/semester. It is hard at Ryerson; physics is a killer, there are 2 physics 1st semester and 1 physics in 2nd semester very hard. Also Calculus and linear algebra.

Electric circuits in 2nd semester has a lab which is very hard, and Dynamics-Physics course will make you to repeat it, almost imposiblle to pass it.

I will say that at least Ryerson, like UofT, is located in a good part of the city. The same can´t be said about York, however.
