Waterloo Or Queens

Subject: Waterloo Or Queens
For Computer Science, should one go for Waterloo or Queens? According to http://www.adm.uwaterloo.ca/infoucal/MATH/comp_sci.html it says ´Graduates of this option do not qualify for the professional engineering designation´ for two of the three options. Does Queens offer ´professional designation´ and what is the significance of this?

Uh... were you expecting queens to offer that designation? Do you even know what it is? Why would you expect a professional engineering certificate if you are doing comp sci?!? That´s like... asking for a certificate on how to make cars when you are studying biology!!! Software engineers sometimes get them.

Oh and to answer your questions,

The cert gives you better chances of landing jobs if you are an engineer

Okay. Say I go to Waterloo. What are the chances of succesfully transfering to Computer Engineering? I kind of applied for the wrong option and the deadline for Comp Eng has passed.

Hi, I´m considering either going into electrical or chemical engineering and even possibly computer engineering
Is waterloo better or queens?
I really like waterloo´s program eg. coop and maybe the MBA engineering combined degree, but i a lota friends r going to queens and its also a good university...and they´re giving me 6 times the amount of scholarship that waterloo ($2000) is giving me...
