Here is the rate for 8 stream 2015 mech students:
72% employed. which is a reasonable %, im actually surprised cause it can be hard to find a decent mech job for 1st coop work term. The rate gets a lot better as you go on though.

Do you happen to have any stats on 4-stream mechatronics students?

Unfortunately they wiped those stats. So no I dont. The rate is likely lower though, cause they dont even get to see your uni marks so they will base it all on your previous work experience and personality.

I'm in the same situation, but with nano. What did you apply for at UT and did they give you an alternate offer?
