EE: utoronto, Waterloo, McGill or UBC?

  1. Apr 28, 2009 #1
    I'm an international and was admitted to the Electrical Engineering programs at the four universities. Any suggestions about which I should choose? I want to go to graduate school so I need letters of recommendation and undergraduate research opportunities.

    I've got several questions:

    1)How would you rank the five universities mentioned above, in terms of strength in EE?

    2)Which university can offer more theoretical education that will prepare students better for grad schools?

    3)Which university can give me a better chance for the top EE graduate schools in the US?

    4)How much does undergraduate coop experience help when you apply to grad schools?

    5)I heard that Waterloo's EE curriculum is relatively practical, which is just suitable for those who want to get jobs as soon as they graduate. Is that true?

    It's kinda last-minute question since reply to McGill is due on May 1. Any response is greatly, greatly appreciated.:smile:

    1)How would you rank the five universities mentioned above, in terms of strength in EE?
    UT, Waterloo/McGill, UBC.

    I hear a lot about Waterloo being a great school for science/engineering here. But it never shows up on world rankings.

    2)Which university can offer more theoretical education that will prepare students better for grad schools?
    UT

    3)Which university can give me a better chance for the top EE graduate schools in the US?
    Waterloo/McGill. UT would if you got top grades, but its REALLY hard to get As at UT. Low GPA = low chance at top school.

    4)How much does undergraduate coop experience help when you apply to grad schools?
    Don't know.

    5)I heard that Waterloo's EE curriculum is relatively practical, which is just suitable for those who want to get jobs as soon as they graduate. Is that true?
    Yea... isn't that the point of an engineering degree?
