Out of these three, probably Concordia and Carleton, then Ottawa.If I had to break the tie between Concordia and Carleton, I would say Concordia has the slightest edge over Carleton, but there are so many other factors to consider (e.g.specific discipline, living in Ottawa v.s.
Montreal, etc.)Lexa is spot on in that it will vary from the specific discipline; this will probably be the most important factor.Carleton is excellent for aerospace and competent at mechanical, software, electrical, and computer.
I believe Ottawa is the only one of the three that even offers chemical.I don’t know what Concordia’s specific strengths are, but I just hear that they are solid overall.
None of them are great engineering schools and it depends heavily on the type of engineering you want to do.Carleton has a decent reputation for computer engineering, but Concordia has a lot more variety.I didn’t even know U of O had a good engineering faculty.
I grew up in Ottawa and never once thought about Carleton or UofO as engineering schools.Concordia only reached my radar because there aren’t a ton of industrial engineering departments around and that’s what I wanted to study.You probably already know this, but the good engineering schools in Canada are Waterloo, Toronto, and Queen’s.
All offer a variety of extremely good programs and have a great history.Waterloo and Toronto are both internationally recognized.
Concordia is pretty good because of the Co-op program.You’d graduate with experience and almost for sure a job.(I went to concordia On the education side its hard to tell.
There are no really good engineering schools in Canada aside from perhaps Waterloo (and ETS).All the prestigious schools ride on reputation and don’t offer anything real in terms of great education.I have worked in software, computer and electrical engineering.
My experience is students from ETS in Montreal are far superior when they graduate due to project based classes and 3 mandatory internships.They have a huge leg up on the non-coop people from Concordia, the Polytechnic people and the Mcgill people.
It really boils down to which specific engineering program you are interested in (as “engineering” is quite broad…).To be completely honest, as far as prospective jobs go, which school you go to is irrelevant so long as you come out of it with a degree.All that said, despite being an Ottawa U alumni, I would cast my vote to Carleton as #1 overall for engineering.
I graduated university before there was a computer science degree.If you know French, then consider ETS (montreal).
As far as I know, Concordia University is more famous for engineering.It would be better if you describe here about your selected engineering branch and interest.
can any one tell me, which is better concordia edmonton or concordia montreal ?
