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.

expand/collapse LevelUp Showcase
Fri, 4 Apr 2014

We wish to extend an invitation to all the Ryerson Computer Science, both students and staff, to Level Up Showcase. It's a FREE huge event in the gaming community in Toronto for showcasing the video games students have made. They are from Ryerson, UofT, OCADU, GBC, Centennial, Senaca, Humber and nine other post-secondary institutions. An estimated 50 students had their games on display each on display last year, and we expect more this year. For the first time ever Ryerson will be attending the annual event, we will be showcasing the game engine Orbit by second year students Zack Harris with assistance from Dante Camarena. A lot of work has gone into it, and they are very excited to show it off. We would love to have as many as you possible there for moral support. It's an excellent opportunity to network with the large gaming opportunity, there are many large sponsors including Microsoft, Autodesk, Unity and local game studios XMG and Uken Games, and many more. There were prizes raffled last year and the same is expected this year. This is Friday April 4, 5 -10 PM, located at the Design Exchange building at 234 Bay Street. map link here.
