Waterloo ranked top computer science program and most innovative university in Canada

Friday, October 8, 2021

MC building with pink tieMaclean's has released its annual rankings of Canadian universities. The University of Waterloo continues to excel overall, and more specifically in ranking categories related to the Faculty of Mathematics.

The Cheriton School of Computer Science was once again ranked as the number one computer science program in Canada. Stay tuned to the computer science news feed for reactions and comments from organizational leaders early next week.

Waterloo was also ranked number one in the innovation category, thanks in no small part to the tech startup culture and the ongoing work of researchers in mathematics who are breaking new ground in AI, quantum, mathematical medicine and other fields.

The university remained number one in experiential education, spurred in no small part by the co-operative education and internship model embedded as a fundamental element of degree programs in the faculty.

Waterloo retained its position as the number one Canadian university for overall reputation. This is a measure of the success of outreach and commitment to the communities we serve throughout the country, such as through the Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing.
