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.

Additive manufacturing processes make products by adding materials layer
by layer, in contrast to removing materials in the conventional
subtractive manufacturing processes. Additive manufacturing technologies
are developing rapidly, which will be an important component of the
upcoming industrial revolution, industry 4.0. This presentation will
review and discuss and review the current status and recent advances of
additive manufacturing with special focuses on 3D printing technology and
printed electronics.


Jun Yang is an associate professor in Department of Mechanical and
Materials Engineering, and has a joint appointment with Biomedical
Engineering Program, Western University (The University of Western
Ontario). He is also an honorary research scientist of Surface Science
Western, Western University. Currently he is leading a ~20 researchers
group conducting interdisciplinary research in areas of
Micro/Nanofabrication, Surface Engineering, Additive Manufacturing/3D
printing, Printed Electronics, Flexible/Wearable Electronics,
MEMS/NEMS/BioMEMS, Lab-on-a-chip, Sensors and Actuators, Green
Technologies and Nanomaterials. He has published more than 90 papers in
high quality journals. He has filed nine US patents. He has given many
invited talks on conferences/symposiums/seminars.

Dr. Yang was a recipient of 2006 PetroCanada Young Innovators Award, 2008
