New technological developments are rapidly being adopted in sectors that include manufacturing, robotics, construction, and more. These developments will be transformative, offering a new level of efficiency, flexibility, and responsiveness across a range of industries.
Ryerson’s focus on innovation in applied science has positioned us to make important contributions to these and other emerging industries, including those based on information management, medical and environmental technologies, novel chemical processes and materials, and micro-technologies, which will form the basis of the 21st century economy.
Our faculty and students look beyond the technical side of innovation to consider the human-oriented aspects of industry and technology. Through collaborative research with both established organizations and start-up companies, Ryerson is helping to streamline design, engineering, production, and maintenance to create a strong technological and industrial ecosystem in Canada.
