Why I love my program

I love how small the program is. We get to know each other really well and it becomes a small family with everyone helping and supporting each other though the program. The program is so versatile and allows me to study both of my passions while helping me understand how to bridge the gap between science and business in the real world.

Why University of Waterloo?

Coming to Waterloo was one of the best decisions I ever made. My program was the perfect match for my interests, the co-op opportunities were an excellent way to get industry experience, the community within the school was so welcoming that it felt like I was coming home when I came to campus.
