    Recommended Software Language to Learn?

    Well, it looks like python is a popular choice. I guess I'll learn that first then C or C++ time-permitting. How does http://www.amazon.ca/Beginning-Python-Novice-Professional-Second/dp/1590599829/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1307331331&sr=8-3"&tag= python text look? Any better ones out there?

    Recommended Software Language to Learn?

    That's great advice, thanks! I did a semester long intro to Computer Science course, did some basic console and GUI programs. I might have a go at developing android apps, that looks pretty interesting. A couple more questions: what are the major differences between C, C#, and C++? With these...

    Recommended Software Language to Learn?

    I am just finishing up grade 11 and thought it would be worthwhile to learn a programming language over the summer. However, I'm unsure which language I would do best to learn. I can already code in Turing, HTML, and Java. I am most likely going to pursue an education in science or engineering...

    Admissions Canadian wondering about applying to School in US for Engineering

    I am more intimidated by the rigor of the specific program I mentioned, not the University itself. the dropout/transfer rate from engsci makes me nervous, as well as being so far from home my first time living alone. Hope that clarifies things.

    Admissions Canadian wondering about applying to School in US for Engineering

    Honestly, UofT better preparing me for grad studies in the US wouldn't really be beneficial as I would probably pick UofT for a grad school whether I went to Carleton or UofT for undergrad.

    Admissions Canadian wondering about applying to School in US for Engineering

    Would you say there's a difference in regards to the sorts of jobs available between Carleton and UofT? I am much closer to Carleton, and along with the easier courseload I think I would prefer it. But if there is a huge difference in the programs I may reconsider. I figured if I couldn't decide...

    Admissions Canadian wondering about applying to School in US for Engineering

    Sorry, I forgot to mention in my OP that I have considered that option, but I'm not sure I will have the grades to get in, and if I did whether I could manage to stay in it.

    Admissions Canadian wondering about applying to School in US for Engineering

    Well, I'm in grade 11, I think the major for me is Aerospace engineering. Unfortunately, there are only two schools in Canada that offer a dedicated aerospace engineering program, and neither of them are extremely well-regarded in terms of academics (as I understand). Which leads me to my...

    Difference between Aeronautical and Aerospace Engineering.

    As far as I know, Aeronautical is in-atmosphere and astronautical is out of atmosphere. Aerospace is an umbrella term that encompasses both disciplines.

    EngiSci Option in Aerospace at UofT?

    Oh no, I'm only in tenth grade, just thinking ahead. UofT EngSci isn't accredited for Aerospace though, would that not be a problem?

    EngiSci Option in Aerospace at UofT?

    Still waiting on some input for my questions. Also, is it a better idea to get a bachelor's in mechanical then do aerospace in grad school? Will this mean I'd be more likely to find a job after school's done because I have a more general background in mechanical and then a specialization in...

    EngiSci Option in Aerospace at UofT?

    Good idea with the internships. Looks like UofT offers year-long placements with Bombardier and Pratt and Whitney. As for your first question, I meant will it hurt me in the field in general. Will a prospective employer be more likely to hire someone out of Carleton or Ryerson rather than me...

    EngiSci Option in Aerospace at UofT?

    I have a question regarding The Aerospace Option at UofT EngSci: Will getting this degree limit me in any way in terms of job opportunities after I graduate? Would I be better off going to Carleton or Ryerson for a full Aero program? My dilemma is that UofT is much more well-respected nationally...
