Admission Requirements

Our students are creative thinkers with a passion for sustainable, innovative design and construction. They’re up for the challenges that this exciting program presents.

To be considered for admission, you must have your Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent with a minimum of six Grade 12 U or M courses, including the following program-specific requirements:

  • English (ENG4U/EAE4U preferred)
  • Physics (SPH4U)
  • Mathematics – either Calculus and Vectors (MCV4U) or Advanced Functions (MHF4U)

The minimum grade(s) required in the above prerequisites (normally in the 65-70% range) will be determined subject to competition. Regarding your overall average, a minimum of 70% establishes eligibility for admission consideration. However, individual programs may require higher prerequisite grades and/or higher overall averages. For the previous year's grade ranges, visit the eINFO website, external link.

This is a grades-plus program. In addition to the academic requirements listed above, this program selects students on the basis of grades plus non-academic requirements.

The following set out the non-academic requirements. These are due by the date specified in your Non-Academic Requirements Reminder posted in your Choose>Ryerson portal:

Please do not submit non-academic material until after you have submitted your application for admission and accessed your Choose>Ryerson Applicant Portal. You will receive an acknowledgement email that will include your Ryerson student number. Your Ryerson student number must be clearly printed on all non-academic materials you submit.

International and Out-of-Province Applicants

If you were educated outside of Ontario, you must submit evidence of education equivalent to the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) with six Grade 12 U or M courses. Note: Ryerson reserves the right to make the final decisions on what equivalencies will be accepted.
