this is my opinion, i took into consideration factors such as co-op opertunities, alumni sucess, preformance in academic competitions, and yes university prestige.

1) waterloo
2) Mcmaster
3) Lakehead
4) Western
5) Ryerson
6) Carleton
7) UofT
8) Laurentian
9) ottawa
10) Queens

And I guess your opinion is better than the gourman report?

"I find it amusing that people are actually considering Waterloo, Ryerson, Carleton, and Windsor as viable candidates for REAL engineering schools (I?m talking about elec, mech, and chem). The simple fact remains that in terms of preparation, UofT and McMaster, along with McGill and UBC, are the top Engineering schools in Canada. Proof? The Gourman Report.

http://www.eng.mcmaster.ca/gourman/

Overall ranking: http://www.eng.mcmaster.ca/gourman/ranking/gourman.html

Ranking based on faculty of Eng: http://www.eng.mcmaster.ca/gourman/ranking/engineering.html (UofT #1, Mac #4 in Canada, #2 in Ontario)

Mech Eng: http://www.eng.mcmaster.ca/gourman/ranking/disciplines/mechanical.html (Note, #1 in Mechanical Engineering)

Other disciplines: http://www.eng.mcmaster.ca/gourman/ranking/disciplines/mechanical.html

As you can see, other than Mech Eng, in Ontario we?re pretty much #2 in everything. So if you want to have to life what so ever, go to UofT. If you want to have fun, while getting a great education, come to Mac.

Find us the real ogorman report website dont link us to your school, if the ogorman report isnt done by mcmaster that is.

I gave mcmaster 2nd on my list anyway so what are you trying to prove anyway?

Because despite your guessing the right rank for McMaster you got most of the rest wrong. You don´t think your anonymous post carries more weight than a university, do you? The Gourman report is out of date but it´s certainly worth more than your opinion.

uuuhhh i wouldnt say my word carries too much weight with strangers but neither does a 7 year old ranking done by one university. That ogorman thing says right on it that they wont disclose their methods of ranking and that it probably will not corellate with any other ranking. how can you take that seriously?

Well, if you knew shit about school rankings you´d of heard about the "ogorman" report. You haven´t provided any links, criteria or sources.... and you complain about lack of clear methodology?

i could provide scattered criteria for you if you want? but i would rather not. if someone disagrees with somthing on the list ill adress it individually.

why is ryerson ahead of uoft, carlton ahead of ottawa, and york on the list at all?

Ryerson is ahead of UofT because i know first hand that its a very tough engineering school, Ryerson is a school thats striving to improve its self by upholding high academic standards, even if it costs the university money by because 1/2 of the students fail.

Carleton gets extra points for having a very competitive aerospace engineering program, other than that, ottawa just doesnt impress me with anything, go to ottawa if your french.

To be honest i dont know why i put york on there.

actually i should have marked OUIT higher if anything, they got accredited by the CEAB very quickly

Ryerson´s engineering program would be tough.... on the students who got in with 71% averages.

I won´t argue that the average engineer one university produces would be better than the average engineer from a different school. I will argue that a 1st year engineering student who had HS grades 15-20% higher than someone else is more likely than them to graduate.

The difference in the median HS averages between the highest and lowest school is 12%. for ryerson the average student has about 80% and at UofT the average is 88% or 89%. 50% of the ryerson engineers pass, and 85% of UofT engineers pass.


lets get this straight, an 8% or 9% difference in HS marks dictates that its normal to have 35% gap pass-fail gap between two universities?

No offense, but UofT attracts a "different" kind of student. Not only are their grades higher, but I think they are looking for a challenge. UofT is known as a hard and competitive school, so those that choose UofT tend to be students who want to be in this sort of environment.

That said, Ryerson is still a fine school and I´m sure it´s challenging, but it´s just not UofT.

thats a really weak argument, anyone who joins engineering wants to be challenged otherwise we would all be taking womens studies. Ive never heard of UofT´s apparent reputation for being more serious.

^ Well, maybe you should crawl out from under that rock then. It´s very well known that UofT and more specifically UofT engineering is exceedingly difficult. Sorry, but you can´t compare Ryerson to UofT.
