Intellectually stimulating environment with room to pusue academic interests.
Academic timetables vary from semester to semester, so each term was different. It was always possible to designate time for research activities, meetings and other important tasks. Excellent student body; dedicated colleagues; strong support from industry colleagues; successful alumni.

Practice Manager | Toronto, ON | Apr. 16, 2018
Great workplace
I enjoyed working at Ryerson. Teaching in Nursing is very different than practicing Nursing, so one will either like it or not. Management was very approachable, and the other staff are all very pleasant to work with.
ProsPositive Workplace
ConsLow salary (Typical of academia, not Ryerson specifically)

Student Identification Verification Personelle | Toronto, ON | Jun. 6, 2017
Fun fast paced workplace
The position I held was temporary and hence the job security was low and low chance of advancement. The job however was really fun, and the staff was excellent, helpful and enthusiastic. The hardest part of the job was dealing with students that do not adhere to policies and rude. Management was rarely around, but even if they were it was very laid back!
ProsMake your own schedule
ConsNo advancement opportunities/Temporary position

Great place to be student and staff.
So far, my experience as both a campus tour guide and chemistry group session leader has been great at Ryerson. Supervisors have always been kind and knowledgeable. Being a student at Ryerson is even better!

Research Student | Toronto, ON | May 17, 2016
Relaxed environment for Research and Development
An internship over 9 months full-time as a research student. Very good colleges, who were always friendly, helpful and also open for any suggestions. During that time, I got involved in design and building a prototype for an battery energy storage system. I learned how to familiarize with project, where I had no background or experience in. I was responsible for implementing the communication between the participation deceives in the MATLAB environment. I also implemented all control algorithm for an autonomous operation. Ryerson gave me a lot of freedom to contribute to that project, which taught me how to use MATLAB, ANFIS, do research and dig into the material to solve a problem or a task.
