UofT vs. Waterloo Chemical Engineering

Hi, I received offers from both UofT and Waterloo for Chemical Engineering and I have to submit my decision to the OUAC soon. I’m not sure as to which school would be better for this program. I know that Waterloo has a developed co-op program, which would probably give me more opportunities than UofT’s PEY Co-op. If I choose to go to UofT, I can live at home and commute to school every day, however, I have commuted downtown before for a volunteer opportunity and it was not the greatest experience. I am worried if I will be able to have enough time to do homework and study. I am also unsure about UofT’s PEY program since I know it is difficult for people to find placements and you only get one internship. On the other hand, I would be looking for a job every year at Waterloo since there are 6 co-op terms. I understand that I probably wouldn’t be able to get any engineering placements my first or second co-op term due to competition and lack of experience. I would also have to move out and go to live in residence. In terms of academics, I believe that both schools are quite similar and very competitive. If anyone also has any insights on things that weren’t mentioned above (social life, professors etc.), please let me know! Any help is appreciated, thanks!

  1. I wouldn’t be so sure you wouldn’t get a co-cop in your first term at Waterloo. I know someone doing Chem Eng at Waterloo in stream B (1st co-op after 8 months) and they have a placement for this summer.

  2. Can’t go wrong with either one, dude. Only problem is, chem eng is probably the worst branch to get into because there’s no jobs in Canada. I would go into something with more broad application like electrical or mechanical.

  3. I don’t know the difference between these two terms but the one thing that I know is the British Assignments Help that you can avail for any subject you want
