We like that we're a little different

At Waterloo Science, we believe your passions will help drive your success. That is why we customize your academics to your chosen subject of major interest in your first year*. This kind of thinking - a focused approach to your education - is what you can expect from Canada's most innovative university.

Whether you choose co-op or the regular stream of study, you'll be prepared for your next adventure - such as graduate school, professional school, or an engaging career.
