I?ve been accepted at the following Canadian Universities for Electrical Engineering. Tell me which one I should go to and why.
1. McGill
2. University of Toronto (St. George Campus)
3. Waterloo (Co-op + Honours)
4. Mcmaster
5. University of Alberta

Please give reasons why you picked a university from the above. Thank You

Waterloo Co-op because you´ll have 2 years of work experience over all other engineering graduates (once you graduate), plus everyone knows Waterloo is one of the best in engineering.

Well, Waterloo is known to be the best in engineering I guess. So it is a big advantage - especially if you are planning to work/continue in Canada.

If, however, you are planning to go to an international school for grad degree, or if you are planning to work abroad, then, Waterloo is not even known outside of Canada. In that case, McGill wouyld be the best ever choice.

One of the best ways to tell a good program is to look at how their students fair in national and international engineering competitions. The IEEE and other organizations are known to sponsor such competitions.

im not exactly sure but waterloo is best in computer engineering....i would say uoft cause they´re engineering programs r really good, and uoft is internationally known.

by the way what was your average that you got into all these univs?

Yeah, if you are planning to work abroad,definitely go for McGill; it is known to be Canada´s Harvard.

If, however, you are planning to work/stay in Canada, then I would say go for Waterloo. Otherwise, McGill is the best choice. Well, UofT is also a good choice.

(I am from the US btw; I am not Canadian)

I am a Pakistani citizen and am a landed immigrant in Canada. I am doing my A-Levels at the moment and will take my final exams in May 2006. My subjects are Physics,Chemistry,Biology,Mathematics. I get A´s in phy,bio,math and B´s in Chemistry.
Before that i took my O-level exams in june 2004 and i had 4A´s and 4B´s, all four A´s were in the sciences Physics,chemistry,mathematics,Biology.
Well i plan on working in USA or Canada, wherever i get a job. Well i´m going to go with Waterloo, and pray everything goes well.
ps. I was even admitted in U of Alberta and McMaster. UBC lost my toefl scores so theres not much i can do about that as i´d choose any of these three over that. Got admitted in McGill on the 5th Jan 2006 :-) talk about early. :-)
Thank You all for your kind replies and if anyone has more to say please do so.

You made the right choice. Waterloo co-op will give you opportunities to work in American companies, so ignore the U of T, McGill fans.

I heard more tech companies from Canada and the U.S. recruit at Waterloo than any other Canadian campus.

Canada´s only great tech company, RIM was founded by Waterloo engineering graduates.

Waterloo Engineering co-op is the best choice.

I´ve worked for U.S. employers in Canadian branch offices all my career. Waterloo grads are no better represented there in their numbers in proportion to their overall school size than UBC, Toronto or RMC.

Do you mean UBC applied science (eng) is as good as those from UT, Waterloo, Macmaster? Also which discipline is UBC particularly well known for in eng?
