The Aerospace Course Union, or ACU for short, is an academic student group representing all undergraduate students enrolled in Aerospace Engineering at Ryerson. The ACU is run by an executive team of undergraduate students whose main goal is to serve the interests of Aerospace Engineering students. This is accomplished through different events that are coordinated throughout the school year. These events start as early as the beginning of each academic year, where the ACU hosts an orientation for all incoming Aerospace Engineering students where they have a chance to meet professors from the Aerospace Department, as well as get to know their fellow classmates for the upcoming years. The ACU also hosts networking events to give students an opportunity to meet representatives from the Aerospace Industry such as, Bombardier Aerospace, and MacDonald Dettwiler Space and Advanced Robotics.

This year the Ryerson Chemical Engineering will be hosting its annual Industry Night during both semester and will be looking to host multiple events to get all years of Chemical Engineering. Our presidents this year have a strong Focus on UNITY as we hope to change the Chem Union forever. To get all years involved in the union's events. Expand networking to other universities. Skill workshops.
The Ryerson Rocketry Club (RRC) is committed to the design, manufacturing and launching of high powered rockets. The main focus of the club is to collaboratively design and manufacture a rocket to be used at the Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition each year in Utah. The rockets we design can stand some 12 feet tall, weigh over 70 lbs. and break the sound barrier in the blink of an eye. For more information or video footage, check out our Facebook page, visit our website or come see us in the shop!

Ryerson's Free Flight team is an engineering design group that takes part in the annual glider competition held by the Canadian Aeronautics and Space Institute (CASI). As the name suggests the team is responsible for the design and manufacturing of a model glider that can sustain flight without the aid of any radio controls and is therefore to be hand launched. The entire construction and design process of this glider is a great learning and application experience for students from all years of study.
IEEE is the world's largest professioanl association dedicated to advancing technological innocation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. IEEE Ryerson is dedicated to giving the proper reources for Ryerson Engineering to succeed as engineering leaders. This includes Industry Night, course tutorials, lab clincs, programming tutorials, conferences, and so much more.
The Canadian Society for Civil engineering: Ryerson Chapter or otherwise known as CSCE: Ryerson chapter serves as the representative entity for the national CSCE. The aim of this club is to connect professional civil engineers and students within a friendly and educational community. Furthermore the club aims to expand their member’s knowledge on civil engineering projects, explore career options in academic and industrial worlds, and develop new skills that can help them in their future professions.
The Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineers (CSME) is an active student group at Ryerson which functions both at national and region level. Members of our cohort are able to pursue their specific interests in engineering and design. Throughout the school year we hold various events and sessions which allow our members to expand their knowledge in their engineering streams and also network with fellow professors, alumni, and engineering students. Some events we are holding this year include SolidWorks and MATLAB seminars, plant tours, networking nights with alumni and study/course aid sessions.
Engineerings Without Borders
Engineers Without Borders strives to raise awareness about and improve the quality of life of people living in poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa. We focus on systemic solutions on the macro level, rather than small scale projects, to help as many people as possible. By doing this we aim to fix the root cause of the problems facing those in need.
