Scope and content

The Mathematics and Physics Department at Ryerson began offering service courses in 1966. By the early 1970s, the department had developed two programs, and a study was conducted to reorganize the department due to this transition. The growing use of computers resulted in the creation of the Math, Physics and Computer Science (MPCS) department in the early 1980s. In 1985, the program converted from a diploma to a degree program. By 1988, the department offered a Bachelor of Technology in Applied Computer Science and was part of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. The department received approval in May 1996 to offer a five-year co-operative program in addition to its regular four-year option. In the late 1990s, the Bachelor of Technology was changed to a Bachelor of Science. Physics became a department of its own in July 2005 as part of the Faculty of Engineering, Architecture and Science. The following year, the Department began offering an undergraduate program in Medical Physics and a graduate program in Biomedical Physics. The first Bachelor of Science degrees in Medical Physics were awarded in 2009. The doctoral program in Biomedical Physics began in Fall 2011. That November, a Physics minor was approved. As of 2013, the MSc and PhD programs offer a CAMPEP-accredited option in Medical Physics. The Department of Physics is part of the Faculty of Science.
