This is a great university if your Asian and nothing more even if you can't write or even speak English, if your a white male or female prepare for reverse discrimination! This university is nothing more than a money grab.It's amazing that the university of Waterloo is ranked higher than most, it really is a wonder.

Question
Funny how only haters choose to comment here.Quite BrightEngineering Department
Funny how only haters choose to comment here. Matter of the fact is, if you're here for anything not Engineering/Math then it's not worth it.

On the other hand, the tech programs here are the best in Canada. Especially because of the Co-op program. I'm in third year Software Engineering, and 90% of my class is heading to the bay area (California) to work for tech giants (like Google/Fb etc) for their next co-op term. The pay for these interns is averaged around 50$/hr along with great connections and environment. If you want a good career path, Waterloo is definitely the best choice. Companies (such as google) even decide to open local offices just to hire Waterloo grads/co-ops.Sad to see loo rated so low on this site.

The school is overly full of its self. They are more concerned with their rep and getting your money than the students
