Subject: EE Grad school advice
Hi,

I´m an undergrad electrical engineering student with about a 3.5 gpa looking at grad school. I have heard that the most reputable engineering schools in Canada are UT and Waterloo. How do their grad programs compare? Are there any other schools I should be considering? Finally, and perhaps most importantly, how are the admissions competitiveness for these schools, and is there anything I can do to prepare for admissions?

Thanks,
Tora

What country are you taking your undergrads in? 3.5 out of 4.0 ? if so the GPA should be okay. Waterloo is the best in Canada overall for eng.

both schools are really good, and your GPA is very competitive. I would suggest requesting information from both schools. What school did u do your undergrad??

Thanks for replies. I´m at the University of Texas at Austin. How would you say Waterloo compares to U.S. institutions in terms of quality and admissions competitiveness?

Well, I´m not familiar with UT@Austins engineering programs, but I do know that both UofT and Waterloo have worldclass programs.

I know this is old, but it´s the only ranking I know of that ranks Canadian Engineering Programs

I know Waterloo´s undergrad is amazing because of their coop program, but I haven´t heard of many people going for their graduate programs.
If you want a masters or phd then U of T and McGill are probably more recognized worldwide. U of T preferably for engineering. They do some pretty insane research there.
