The First-Year Engineering Office is your dedicated department and your point of contact for all things Ryerson! The First-Year Engineering Office has a team of dedicated professionals to help your transition to university up until your promotion to second year.
Our First-Year Ambassadors know exactly what you're going through and they're keen to share their knowledge and help you get acquainted with university life. Connect with an ambassador personally through email.
Check out this welcome package for some need-to-know information items, and to give you an idea of what to expect at Ryerson this Fall. We've included a new student checklist, important dates, a sample class schedule, first-year FAQ and advice from current students, as well as a guide to helpful services that are available to students on campus.
The Math Mini Course is the perfect opportunity for you to sharpen your math skills before starting university! Refresh your skills in Equations and Inequalities, and Polynomial and Trigonometric Functions before taking Calculus I in the Fall. It's also a good opportunity to get to know some of your classmates before September.
The Communications Proficiency Resource Path ensures that you have the skills required to excel in your second-year communication course and in your future career. Specialized professional and technical communication, and written, oral, and problem solving skills are powerful tools for engineers in an increasingly complex and challenging world.
Proactive retention strategies play an important role in helping you build your skills for success in a demanding engineering curriculum. During Early Intervention, if you are failing core courses at the semester's mid-point, we will invite you to meet with an academic advisor to discuss options to help reduce the chances of academic failure and to improve your academic performance, like enrolling in the Transition Program. The Transition Program provides you with more time to adapt to the demanding university curriculum by providing you with an immediate opportunity to upgrade your academic standings and to complete missing and/or failed courses.
