Ryerson’s IEEE Student Chapter

The Ryerson University IEEE Student Chapter was founded on January 2nd, 1963 by the electrical engineering students. Since then, the branch has served the student body currently completing the Bachelor of Electrical, Computer, and Biomedical Engineering degrees at Ryerson University.

This branch is operated by a group of undergraduate electrical, computer, and biomedical engineering students with a passion for technology and all things engineering!

Last year, during the Night of Recognition 2017, IEEE Ryerson was awarded the ‘RESS Most Active Group Award’ for its outstanding job in making  engaging events for the engineering students.

IEEE Ryerson holds many events through out the year including EngExpo, Course Tutorials, Tech Conferences, Hackathons, and IEEE Ryerson’s flagship event: Industry Night! 


IEEE Ryerson plans to continue making a difference in the students’ career!
