Mcgill a good school?

<p>Hi, i was wondering if McGill has a good undergraduate engineering program compared to other colleges in the US, and do companies in the US think of it as a good university ? thanks</p>

<p>I don't know much about its engineering, but McGill is very well known throughout the world. Isn't it a top 2 Canadian university?</p>

<p>Engineering, no.
Not at all.</p>

<p>If you're interested in a Canadian college with world-renowned Engineering courses, I'd look at these three, in this order:</p>

<p>U of Waterloo
U of Toronto

<p>I second Waterloo, by far</p>

<p>Engineering, no ? I though McGill was known for its Engineering programs ! :O</p>

<p>Well, McGill is a good school, but it's not particularly known for its engineering program (I'll third Waterloo as a having a "better" program). But university, especially undergrad studies, is not all about strength of the school in a program (really, undergraduate courses pretty much have the same content, no matter where you go, as long as the faculty is large enough, you'll essentially get the same education, though co-op programs do make a difference). Montreal is way more exciting as a city than Waterloo. Also, I see you're from France, so you could consider the other engineering schools in Montreal, like l'Ecole de Technologie Superieure (affiliated with Universite du Quebec) and la Polytechnique (affiliated with Universite de Montreal). While your standard CCer may not know about these places, employers in the field certainly do.</p>

<p>Because you are a citizen of France, I believe you are eligible for the same tuition rates paid for by Quebecers. This is a bargain (roughly €2000 or less per year). McGill is not well known for its engineering program, but as said earlier, it is a strong school in general and that is more important for undergrads. It is better well known in the US than la Polytechnique, and if you want to study in North America than McGill would be a good place for you.</p>

<p>In addition to Waterloo having killer Engineering programs, they also offer co-op along with it. Two terms of classes, and one term of co-op per year.
Engineering programs offered are:
Chemical Engineering
Civil Engineering
Computer Engineering
Electrical Engineering
Environmental Engineering
Geological Engineering
Management Engineering
Mechanical Engineering
Mechatronics Engineering
Nanotechnology Engineering
Software Engineering
Systems Design Engineering </p>

<p>Waterloo also has an entirely French floor at one of their residences--La Bastille at St. Paul's Residence.</p>

<p>I sound like a freakin' pamphlet.</p>

<p>compared to other colleges in the US - not really. it's certainly the best known Canadian college in the US, though (and one I applied to, incidentally).</p>

<p>It's definitely one of the most prestigious schools in Canada, and is well-known throughout the world, but it's not really an engineering school.</p>
