"My first year of engineering at Ryerson University was very memorable with loads of challenges and successes. Transitioning from high school was tough but with the help of the First-Year Engineering Office, I learned how to prioritize my various academic responsibilities, and even found time to join in on some extracurricular activities. I feel totally prepared for my second year!"

“I always encourage students to get involved in the extracurricular and professional development opportunities that FEAS has to offer. In my second year, I was an Architecture Course Union representative and I led a project for the Luminato festival. Those experiences in leadership have definitely shaped who I have become, both as a person and a professional.”

"The engineering programs host many networking events between students and industry professionals. The closer I get to graduation, the more I see the importance of taking advantage of these opportunities. Now I make a point of attending all relevant events so that I can strengthen my professional and personal connections."

"I’m really enjoying extracurriculars this year. As the co-director of logistics for the IEEE Computer Society Ryerson Chapter, I've had the opportunity to organize workshops on everything from resumé critiques to cloud computing. I also discovered my passion for medical technology innovation through the Biomedical Zone's co-development lab program, and I'm grateful to be continuing in this direction with my current internship at MedChart Inc."

"In the industrial engineering program, I’ve found a healthy school-life balance. The willingness of my professors to provide guidance goes beyond what I could have expected. As a result, I am graduating with a full-time engineering job already secured in the project management office at Thales Transportation Solutions Canada, and an enriching academic experience under my belt."
