My foremost reason for applying to Waterloo computer engineering is because of the exceptional co-op system. The experience I'll gain from coop along with my academics, can help me reach my goal of becoming a hardware engineer and set up the foundation for my career. Waterloo also offers technical electives on topics such as computer architecture, and embedded computer systems, which will strengthen my interests in hardware development. Through these electives, I can build a stronger academic backbone, which I can later apply through co-op, where I hope to get placements at Intel or AMD. Apart from my interest for computer hardware, my decision to pick Waterloo CE was pushed by a desire to improve the livelihoods of those around me through technology. And at Waterloo, I know I will receive both the education and experience I need to do so.One at a time.
