In the magazine’s reputation survey, Waterloo has placed first as best overall of all universities in Canada, 13 out of 15 times. Located within Canada’s famous technology triangle, Waterloo is known as the “Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)” of Canada. In the spirit of innovation, over 40 years ago Waterloo was one of the first universities with an entire faculty dedicated to the study of environment. Today, the Faculty of Environment strives to create smart solutions to the environmental issues in the business world.
