Waterloo's faculties

Most students will be based in one of our six faculties while studying at Waterloo. A faculty is a group of departments and professional schools that offer programs (also called majors) relating to the theme of that faculty.

Your academic advisor, labs, facilities, student societies, and most of your professors and courses will be in your faculty. However, most programs allow you to take courses in other faculties.
