yconic is the place where you can give and get the help you need for your life as a student. To help keep our community an enjoyable, helpful and safe place for all members, please adhere to the following guidelines.
1. Be nice to people. It's okay to provide constructive criticism, but there is no need to insult other members. For example, "X major is over-saturated right now. You might have trouble finding a job" is fine. "Your major is dumb. Have fun working in fast food," is not helpful nor appropriate.
2. Ask actual questions. If you're looking for help with something, titling a thread "HELP, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO" isn't going to appeal to the members that may be best suited to help you. Be specific and title your post with relevant information.
3. Don't abuse the anonymous feature by pretending to be multiple people. Surprise, surprise, we know who posts what :)
4. Please only tag relevant interests when you create a new thread. Adding unrelated interests is unlikely to get you the help you're looking for and can frustrate other members.
5. Avoid spamming. This includes replying to your own thread for the sole purpose of moving it up the discussion feed.
6. Don't expose other people's personal information. If someone is posting anonymously, please respect their privacy.
7. If you see something you don't like, click the 'Report' button in the post menu and a moderator will review it. Please avoid commenting on inappropriate posts as this only encourages them.

Does anyone know if UOIT is a good school? I am curious because I live in the area. I want to apple either Mechanical or Automotive Eng? Do they have a good curriculum, because I know UoIT it is not a known school and I am scared applying for it. Plus, is it worth taking Engineering at UoIT? Also, does anyone know when Universities sends their application for acceptance? Thank you.
What are your grade averages (from Grade 11) going into applying for the scholarship? Mine sits at an 83 average with my highest mark being an 89. This will probably decrease my chances to be considered but do you think my grades will flat out kill it?
Can someone give me a realistic average for Civil Engineering and Software Engineering at Carleton? Their website says 75% - 85% above, and this averages may varies on the competitions and how many students apply. What was last year cut off average for Civil and Software, that is a for sure acceptance?
For ECE it looks like for the Electrical Engineer and Computer Engineer both take all the same courses and then can focus in depth the same courses. So, I'm confused on what's the difference between both? Which would be better to go into if I want to minor in mechanics and systems?
For the Common First year program at Western for engineering if I get in and then chose to major in MIE taking MIE first year programs or second year? If I did common first year would it add another year onto my undergraduate studies
Hey, I'm in Grade 12 and well it's time to start applying for universities and think about what degree I should get. So, I'm wondering what courses are you taking and for what job? I know personal interest is definitely a factor, but I also want to take something useful. So, for example, I have aspirations of becoming a doctor, but if I unable to get to that level I don't want to be stuck with a degree that I cannot use anywhere else. Any advice?
For the track one program at U of T if I get in and then chose to major in, say, MIE will I be taking MIE first year programs or second year? If I did Track One would it add another year onto my undergraduate studies?
I'm a first year Biomedical Mechanical Engineering student studying at the University of Ottawa. Feel free to ask me about anything ( residence, admissions, campus life, academic resources, admissions to other Universities, why u of O, etc.) and I'll answer to the best of my abilities. Fall last year was really stressful for me when applying for uni, so I hope this thread will help you guys out.
I recently graduated and received my advanced diploma as a robotics technician (Mech.Eng Technician) program, early on in my first year I remember my program coordinator mentioning something about receiving my degree but by completing tests/exams and not having to attend a university, he did mention that it is a rather long process and a lot of work is involved but I am not sure what he meant and I can't find any information related to this online, I was wondering if anyone here had any knowledge of this and what the requirements for such a thing are.
I am currently in grade 12, and am conflicted in choosing what program I should pursue in university. I really enjoy math chemistry and physics, so I am considering engineering, but I don't know if I can really imagine myself doing that. Another program I am considering is business, which I can imagine myself doing a lot more, but English and social are not my best subjects. How did some of you guys in university end up choosing your programs?
I'm not sure what field of engineering I want to go into, however I'm leaning towards mechanical. UofT TrackOne is my top choice and i really want to go there, however the sup app and especially the admission average is making me nervous. My grade 11 average was 90.4% (it was a rough year)
physics 89 (terrible teacher)
im hoping for a 92-93 average in grade 12.. i have deca, students withour borders and rugby as my extracurriculars.
what are my chances for uoft trackone and mcmaster gen engineering?
Hello! I am a gr12 IB student and want to do Waterloo ECE or CS but at the uni fair, they said the engineering faculty in general has LESS THAN 10% ACCEPTANCE RATE. What would be an appropriate 2nd choice if I want to do a CS related career? I always wanted to apply software eng but admission rate is way too low. (also chance me pls)
MCR3U - 100
MDM4U - 100
SPH3U - 100
SCH3U - 95
ENG3U - 94
CIA4U - 100
FSF4U - 97 (bless IB Econ & IB French mark boost)
ICS3U - 92 (teacher was really strict)
currently doing 4 HLs in IB for that ICS4U credit, RIP sleep
I have pretty mediocre ECs tho. A few club exec positions but nothing too great, a few contests/DECA but never won, a few sports but dropped them all this year, a few job/volunteers but it was working fast food & summer camp volunteer, a few math/physics summer programs but rejected by shad twice.
I was wondering if the undergraduate degree in engineering at UBC is general first year, or do you have to specify what you want to do first year, for example like chemical or mechanical? I would prefer a general first year because I have no idea what specific type of engineering I want to pursue. I know some schools like Queen's do provide that, so I am wondering if that is the case with UBC as well.
I'm currently in grade 11 and I want to go into engineering (maybe electrical, but mostly undecided what kind of engineer specifically) at preferably Waterloo or UofT. I started a finance club with some friends and I'm apart of athletic council and few other smaller things (like deca, election committee, a sport team). I know ec's don't matter that much at Waterloo or UofT but would universities dislike how my ecs don't really line up with the field I'm applying for?
Hello, I am a grade 12 student and am looking into engineering as a possible university program. However, I can't decide what genre of engineering to pursue. So far I'm considering McMaster and am open to any suggestions on other schools. I would also really appreciate anything that students currently enrolled in engineering could share that might help me narrow down to a specific field or at least just lean more on the topic. Thanks in advance!
I am currently a senior in high school and I plan to attend university next fall (2018). I love both Queen's and Waterloo equally and for different reasons. I plan on studying either Math, Science or Engineering. I was wondering which of the two universities are better or have a higher reputation for each program.
Also, for those of you who have had trouble choosing between Queen's and Waterloo in the past (regardless of the program), which one did you end up picking and why?
