Institute for Aerospace Design & Innovation (RIADI)

Based at Toronto Metropolitan University, the Ryerson Institute for Aerospace Design and Innovation (RIADI) connects bright engineering students to leading Canadian aerospace companies. A unique partnership between Toronto Metropolitan University and the Canadian aerospace industry, RIADI immerses students in real-world, intensive aerospace research and design at some of the most important aerospace companies in Canada, including Bombardier, BionX, Pratt & Whitney Canada, and UTC Aerospace Systems.

RIADI’s industry partners trust its students with important projects—giving them the chance to drive change in areas such as design and manufacturing. RIADI also complements Toronto Metropolitan University’s Aerospace Engineering department’s co-operative internship program, as many students leverage their RIADI-acquired professional experience to secure some of the most coveted positions available.
