The RYERSON UNIVERSITY thread

OK, since the other universities have their own, might as well make up one for one for us too...

I am going into first year Mechanical Engineering and i am nor living on campus

Oh why does engineering have to be so expensive? How much did urs cost?

university is expensive, but nothing compared to the states, so consider ourselves lucky

$4600 for 1 term (4 month), double that for 8 month. figure just for tuition and other crap, not including meal, housing.

Engineering may be little bit expensive but it is one of the exciting subject
at the Ryerson. always try to buy used books. if you look around you'll see
many posters stating books for sale. buy them as soon as your prof. recommend them. virtually, you will not lost money if you sell them in the next semester for
$10-$20 less per book. .....and it is also your best interest not to make any bad habbits such as alcohol etc. remember the student you will see in the 1st year in engineering atleat 30% will be gone by the 2nd year- i can promise you that.

I'm going to my final year in Marketing at Ryerson, can't wait to graduate :D my tuition wasn't too bad, about $4000 a year w/o txt books. You'll be able to buy used books, there are lots of postings around, and they are so much cheaper than new. I buy most of my books used, saves me tons of money. Last semester, all my books for the 5 classes I took didn't cost me over $120.

I'm going into my third year in the ITM program this september. Last year I think I spend about $500 on the textbooks. Big time rip-off. Its like $100+ for those accounting/finance books. My tuition this year is like $6400 or something.

tips for first year eng @ rye.

go in the first day at 8am-9am, go to the bookstore. the bookstore is arranged by faculty, they have boards with the courses. find your courses and the text is listed. buy the used ones. because once the prof says the text people leave the class to buy a used one. Check to see if second year used the same book, cause u can buy them off any second year.

also first year eng is general eng, every eng has the same course as others.

Go to frosh, you won't regret it ;)

Also, if you want to get a head start, you can check over some of the course material, as I've scanned the course outlines for Mech Eng here: http://aznrocket.googlepages.com/mecheng

Sigh ... feels like only yesterday I was starting out in first year, now I'm in my final year ... :|

For any third-year mechengs there, I have some tests here: http://yip.dennis.googlepages.com/mechengtests

Enjoy ;)

Not to scare/discourage you but I took a year of engineering and dreaded every second of it. However, residence and the social aspect of it was unforgettable. Best 8 months of my life...
