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 Ada Byron Lovelace: Celebrate the 200th Birthday of a Computer Pioneer
Sun, 06 Dec 2015


She was poet Lord Byron's daughter. She became fascinated by mathematics and technology. Called the Enchantress of Numbers by one of her collaborators, she combined her poetic imagination with her mathematical skills to write the first computer algorithm in 1843 notes. We're marking her 200th birthday (Dec. 10, 1815) at the Revue Cinema, with a screening of a documentary about her, "To Dream Tomorrow", and a panel discussion with Imogen Coe, Ryerson Dean of Sciences; Alex Ferworn, Ryerson Computer Sciences professor, and Allan Olley, historian of computing. They will delve into Ada's short, intense and unconventional life and explain her remarkable accomplishments. This screening is one in a series about Extraordinary Women. Proceeds go to CityShorts, a student program for making short neighbourhood documentaries for screening at The Revue.

WHEN
Sunday, December 6, 2015 from 3:30 PM to 6:00 PM (EST)

WHERE
Revue Cinema - 400 Roncesvalles Ave. Toronto, ON M6R 2M9 CA
