Why I love my program

I really love the versatility of the program. The biotechnology aspect is challenging, scientific, and technical. The economic aspect is mathematical, psychological, and philosophical. I honestly can't imagine doing one and not the other.

Why University of Waterloo?

I went on a tour of the university back in high-school. We got to do an experiment in one of the chemistry labs and it was a ton of fun. After that I found out about the Science and Business programs and I was hooked, (it was also far away from home).
