    Heading off to study in Europe???

    Currently in EngSci at UofT and got accepted to http://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&sourc...unwCQ&usg=AFQjCNGP9u2wfg1t_cUDUIjg0nr25zzetg"program in Europe on advanced robotics in Warsaw Univerisity of Technology and Univeristy of Genova in Italy. The reputation of these schools isn't comparable to UofT like epfl, ezh, cambridge, imperial college would be so is it worth it to go or not?

    What are your goals? To learn, to get a job, both? I think the answer may vary according to this.

    One major thing concerning a degree granted outside of the US if you plan to work in the US and especially if you plan to continue onto a PhD in the US: Make sure the degree will be recognized once you return. But just as fluidistic said, these things only matter if you are looking for that degree to be used as a stepping stone. If you are looking to go just to be immersed in a new culture or some other reason, then it would likely be a good choice.
