In September 2021, Ryerson University will expand its programming into the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region with the launch of a satellite campus in Cairo, Egypt. Ryerson’s Cairo campus, whose physical presence will be facilitated by 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.
Degree programming will include Media Production, Sport Media, and Fashion through Ryerson’s Faculty of Communication and Design, as well as Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering through its Faculty of Engineering and Architectural Science. Ryerson will oversee academic programming, course quality and admission decisions, as the Cairo campus programs will follow the same curriculum as those offered to students in Canada.
“Well known as a community and city builder, Ryerson is moving onto the world stage to deliver smart and scalable solutions to global challenges,” says Ryerson’s President and Vice-Chancellor, Mohamed Lachemi. “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.”
