Question 1: REASONS FOR CHOOSING YOUR PROGRAM AND WATERLOO
Please tell us about your educational goals, your interest in your chosen program(s), and your reasons for applying to the University of Waterloo. If you have applied to more than one program please discuss your interest in each program. (900 character limit)
I would like to get an undergraduate degree in engineering and work towards a p.Eng while gaining hands-on experience in the industry. I feel that Waterloo Engineering's cohort program will help me build connections and community with my peers, even with the relatively large class. While I am stronger in my math and science courses, I am more interested in the design and human aspects of engineering. System Design Engineering's breadth of disciplines along with Waterloo's range of co-op opportunities will allow me to build important people-centred skills, while giving me a solid technical foundation for the future, where I wish to focus on product design in the healthcare industry, or complex systems such as in transportation. I also applied to Management, which deals with optimizing these very complex systems, but more on the business and economic aspects, as opposed to design.
