For over 40 years, Waterloo Engineering students have given feedback on their learning experiences through in-class surveys known as Course Critiques.

In 2016 the Faculty of Engineering adopted electronic delivery of course evaluations, but the survey questions have not changed in over ten years. Slightly different survey questions are asked in the undergraduate (PDF) and graduate graduate (PDF) questionnaires, but each includes a summative question that asks students their perception of the overall quality of teaching in the course.

The Teaching Portfolio oversees the course evaluation process including the areas listed below:
