Question
School environment lacks social cohesion.Social Work
School environment lacks social cohesion. Students are aloof and obsessed with academics. The culture of the school is very isolating. There is a lot of hype about the schools programs and coop, however, the school seldom boasts about its lack of integration and high incidences of gender based violence. Not a good step in a positive university experience.

Question
This school is absolutely rubbish if you wantMechanical Engineering
This school is absolutely rubbish if you want to learn from it. To be honest the only reason that anyone should choose this school is for its coop program. The professors are impossible to learn from (due to accents and teaching methods), unapproachable and quite frankly don't give have a sh*t about teaching. They make it very clear that they would rather be doing their "research". Do not come to this university if you expect a learning environment.
