Ryerson Computer Science
Ryerson CompSci
Department of Computer Science
The Department of Computer Science is located at The Centre for Computing and Engineering - 245 Church Street. Moriyama & Teshima designed the new Centre for Computing and Engineering on the urban campus of Ryerson University in the heart of downtown Toronto, Canada. The building features a sculptural treatment of the Church Street facade that dramatically changes throughout the day as the sun and ambient light varies. At times reflective and at time transparent, the building is a distinctive symbol of Ryerson. The facility brings together a number of departments including Aerospace, Civil Engineering, Computing Science and Electrical and Computing Engineering. Design started in February 2002 and the facility opened to students in the fall term of 2004.
