In September, Ryerson will expand its programming into the Middle East and North Africa region with the launch of a satellite campus in Cairo, Egypt. The campus, in conjunction with Universities of Canada in Egypt, will give local students the opportunity to earn a Ryerson degree in an environment that emulates the Canadian university experience.
“Well known as a community and city builder, Ryerson is moving onto the world stage to deliver smart and scalable solutions to global challenges,” said Mohamed Lachemi, president and vice-chancellor. “This exciting partnership with Universities of Canada in Egypt, and new educational model, will make Ryerson’s strong academic programming available to more students as we continue to enhance the international scope of our aspirations and influence.”
Ryerson’s Cairo campus will offer select programs through the Faculty of Communication and Design and the Faculty of Engineering and Architectural Science. Degree programming will include media production, sport media and fashion, civil engineering, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering.
