Aerospace at Carleton or Mechatronics at Waterloo

A photo of KP640 KP640
I don't really know which one to pick right now. I have offers from both. I was wondering which one is the better choice. People have been telling me Waterloo is just better than Carleton, but I've heard others say it doesn't matter what you pick for your undergraduate degree just your graduate degree.

I have talked to a friend at Waterloo who was in Mechanical, and he says that after discussion with profs and stuff he found out that there are very little jobs for aerospace in Canada, so he switched to civil.

Just out of curiosity, what was ur admission average since you got into mechatronics.

Go to Carleton. It is quite possibly the most under-rated university in the world.

I don't know much about Carleton's Engineering program but all I know is that Waterloo is amazing. People don't tend to do master's before 4 years of experience so an undergrad is still kind of important.

Waterloo is a really good university because of it's co-op program. I am pretty sure you heard it a million times but co-op placements at UW are unbelievable. My brother is studing Software and he worked at CIBC IBM and Sunlife insurace in his first years. His friend who is a lot smarter than him worked at RIM (Company who makes blackberries) and his wage was $30 an hour. Which is more than what my sister makes, she is a graduate from UOIT and she is making $27.

Waterloo gives you experience and the money to pay off tuition. Which in my opinion is important, less debt=less stress?

I don't know much about Carlton so I am not saying anything negative about it, just saying UW is really good. Espacially if you really like Engineering, then you can make loads of $$$

Oh btw, UW is hard as hell. Engineering is hard in general and UW just makes it worst :). Go to it if you really really like Engineering.
