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.
8. Did a post help you? Click the "Was this post helpful?" button to help us recognize our most helpful members and so that other people will know the response was...you guessed it, helpful!
If you do not respect our guidelines, you may be temporarily or permanently banned from the yconic community.
I was looking at the Mining Engineering program as I wanted to go to Mcgill and still wanted to be in an coop program (I know Waterloo is known for that but I dont like the city there) Please feel free to leave comments n stuff. IF YOU HAVE APPLIED OR BEEN ACCEPTED DO ME A FAVOR AND PUT THE COURSES YA TOOK AND THE MARKS ASWELL.
Biomedical engineering or Bio engineering as bachelors and physiotherapy for a masters...The idea is to get all of my prerequisites for physiotherapy through elective courses ....Although engineering seems to be looked at as one the hardest degrees for a high gpa to get accepted in a program such as physiotherapy ..... What do you guys think about this kind of combination....is it possible?..is it worth it? ANY recommendations, better ideas or input is great.... thanks for your help (P.S. maybe this is a bad idea and i need a reality check...tell me if so :))
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?
I'm in gr12 and I've applied for mechanical engineering programs.
This semester I had English, chem, and advanced functions.
Next semester I will have physics, French, bio, and calculus.
I'm thinking about dropping bio though because I checked the prerequisites for all the programs I applied to and I don't need bio (just 2 of the 3 sciences in some cases).
Would it be worth it to take bio? I work part time and I also do music lessons and martial arts both of which I love and don't want to have to stop doing because I have no time. So I kind of want to drop bio and have a spare instead so I can focus on getting a good foundation in physics and calc (which I'm assuming is important for engineering lol)
I don't know if bio would also be good to take? Is it better to take all 3 sciences??
TLDR Should I drop bio for a spare to focus on physics and calc or should I keep it??
Hey guys, i was looking through best buy the other day and was wondering... what's the best laptop for engineers? (affordable and but not cheap) Also, one preferably lightweight since i will be carrying it in my backpack everyday.
I heard that Computer Science is about math more than programming so would a computer programming degree at UofT be better if I wanted to work in a big tech firm? I doubt I would get into Waterloo for SE.
