Where do you get your information from?

Ontario Board of Professional Engineers reported that Canada currently has more than 100,000 of surplus Engineers, thanks to bringing 10,000 surplus every year! This is the key issue, not the quality of degree. As a result, on the average only 58% of engineers coming out of the Canadian schools can manage a permanent job in Canada. Now how would you explain this? At least there mustn?t be any question about the quality of Canadian degrees. What?s the explanation of such sorry figures for them? Why they are also having tough time to manage jobs and many of them have to either continue menial jobs or leave the country?

I had US Masters in engineering, had US experience, then got the 2nd Masters from the best Canadian school U of T, that couldn?t secure me a job in Canada. I?m not alone, it happened to most of my immigrants classmates. So please don?t misled people by telling the fairy tales of bad degrees. That may be one of the reason, but still can?t explain the major problem at all.

As I mentioned earlier, getting degrees from best schools do not always gaurantee jobs. Getting job after graduation depends on individual profile. Even with a bachelor degree, many are making mad money in this profession. And one thing I don?t quite understand - why did you pursue second Masters after giving up your previous job in US? A second MS, like a second MBA, does not add much value when you plan to do PhD or go for employment later. Instead, you could identify universities that accept your profile in that time and apply for PhD directly. That would be better option.

The ranking comparison is fake.

Hi Humble, can you show us your methodology? How did you arrive at these rankings?

This is not a ranking but a comparision between US and Canadian engineering schools.

The comparison is great but it doesn´t tell me specifics.
I got into Engineering science at U of Toronto-the hardest program in Canada as well as UBC, Waterloo, Queens. I also got into UCSD, UC Davis and Purdue. I´m still waiting for the other US schools- Carnegie Mellon, UPenn, Cornell and Stanford. I probably won´t get in any of them so I´m wondering if it is worthwhile for me to go to UCSD. I want to study Bioengineering. Please help!
