Hello,

Does anyone have anything to say about UofC's engineering program? The time is nearing for me to pick a school, and the most convienient one would be the University of Calgary. I looked for "top engineering schools in Canada," and UofC was on one or two of the lists, but not all of them. Anyone have an oppinion on whether or not they are a good school for civil engineering/mechanical engineering?

You mentioned; the most convenient one for you is University of Calgary, please go there. There is no good or bad one, all of them are the same, all universities are money makers which is fine.
My cousin graduated from the University of Calgary in Civil (construction) Engineering and is a BIG man in the Construction Consulting Firm, Mississauga, Ontario.
