Subject: too much of a confusion - graduate elec. engg.
hi,
i m havin a hell lot of trouble deciding which universities to apply for my graduate studies. i m from india and i thought canada would be a good place to do my M.A.Sc in electrical engg.
i wish to pursue my research in microwave and photonics and so far i ve applied to
1) U of T
2) Waterloo
3) Queens
4) Ottawa

I m thinking of applying to McMasters, alberta and dalhousie. I have also had people telling me job opportunities are a problem in canada.
i would glad if someone could help me with this, because i m beginning to worry, wondering whether i m making a mistake by investing a lot on my graduation here.
Could some one be able to send across the list of university ranking for engineering (electrical)? Would it make sense to apply to other universities in canada that are ranked high.

Thanks

Dont apply to Quebec Universities. You will find it extremely hard to find work in Quebec.

I dont think you will find it hard to find work in Toronto. AS long as you can write and speak well, you will be fine.

Viv, you can´t go wrong doing a M.Eng at any of those schools. I wouldn´t worry about job prospects either. However you should be careful reading the fine print of the student (or whatever) visa to see if you are allowed to stay and work afterwards. You might also want to ask at another forum like forums.studentawards.com. Don´t expect better quality answers, just less insults.

^ I agree, If you are good at what you do, then you will have to turn away opportunities. By-the-way, a lot of profs at waterloo are muslims http://ece.uwaterloo.ca/People/Faculty/

and at u of t also:

I really wouldn´t take advise from people who are strong to their sterotypes ... These are people who are normally blind to opportunities and will tell you that there are no jobs is Canada.

Good luck
