Overall reviews at Ryerson University
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.
Nice place for having your first scientific experience
• Developed math and MATLAB/Simulink models for the study of circulating speed impact on the articulated vehicle's swept path, articulation angle, and accommodation while moving on roundabouts
• Conducted NSERC engage project "Passing Collision Warning Systems (PCWS)" with Canadian company TranSoft Solution, Inc. Composed: full engine-drivetrain Simpack-model for automated transmission, integrated vehicle Simulink-model, new driving model based on the 2D sight perception of 3D perspective. Implemented an author's algorithm for the overtaking time forecasting based on the vehicle dynamic characteristics for several types of overtaking mode. The project and results were aimed to extend the company's activity area in the field of vehicle and infrastructure interaction.
• Developed an original technique based on Adaptive MPC, FEM, and LQP for optimizing the path planning and speed distribution for a single autonomous car overtaking a long commercial vehicle on two-lane highways
• Have published 6 articles, including in the most prestigious North American journals like TRB, the downloading number of some of them has reached more than 1500 times
• Got an award 1st place Winner in the nomination "The best paper": Proposed Collision Warning System for Two-Lane Highways. Canadian Society for Civil Engineering. Conference, Vancouver, May 2017
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.
ConsLow salary (Typical of academia, not Ryerson specifically)

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

Wonderful place to work
The daily focus was preparing documentation for Board and Committee meetings.
I learned to communicate with CEOs of large corporation.
Dealing with professors, staff, and students was most enjoyable.
ProsRefreshments at the meetings
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!
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.
