The George Vari Engineering and Computing Centre is a 4-story building that is part of Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario.

Initially, in 2000, Santiago Calatrava proposed that the engineering building be 33 floors. The cost was $90 million and $25 million over Ryerson University's budget.[1]

Completed in 2004 by Moriyama & Teshima Architects and home to Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics and Aerospace Engineering. The state-of-the-art building cost $45 million to complete.

The building was officially renamed in 2005 to the George Vari Centre for Computing and Engineering after a gift from George and Helen Vari.
