A Solid Foundation

Career
Success

Edna Sacay is an
industrial physicist
in the area of
radiation protection

learned in the majority of my courses that
I took at Ryerson." Getting the chance to
conduct her undergraduate thesis work in a
laboratory at Sunnybrook's Odette Cancer
Centre was another huge positive at Ryerson,
adds Sacay, who won second prize for
her undergraduate medical physics thesis
presentation. "It helped me learn more
about what types of careers the program
would lead me towards."
Finally, besides the strong support from
Ryerson faculty, Sacay recalls the engagement
opportunities at Ryerson: "I was a third-year
rep and then vice-president of finance of the
Medical Physics course union. I volunteered
with the organization of Science Rendezvous
within the Physics faculty. And I would highly
recommend getting involved while at Ryerson
because of the networking opportunities
supported by its downtown location."

FIVE YEARS AGO, EDNA SACAY (BSc '12) enrolled in
Ryerson's Medical Physics program. Today,
she is a year-and-a-half into a satisfying career
in her field.
"I am currently an industrial physicist at a
consulting company in the area of radiation
protection in the nuclear industry," says
Sacay. "The work I'm involved with includes
running and analyzing simulations for radiation
shielding assessments, R&D of a commercial
radiation detector system and providing
technical support on contracts."
How did she get there? Sacay credits her
undergraduate studies for providing a solid
foundation. "The variety of courses provided me
with a broad knowledge that I required to excel
in the medical industry and other applications."
Sacay, who went on to earn her master's
degree in Nuclear Engineering at UOIT, says
"I was able to transfer a lot of my knowledge
