Hey guys, back again. So, I had a lot of time to think about what steps to take going forward. I am actually kind of torn right now. I really like nano stuff, and as john.john23 said, materials might be the best option. However, I have thoroughly gone through all courses in academiccalendar for all courses. Some cool courses like MATLS 2X03 - Crystalline Structure of Materials seem to be interesting, but the third and fourth year mtls courses like
MATLS 3B03 - Materials Production
MATLS 3C04 - Thermodynamics of Multicomponent Systems
MATLS 3E04 - Mass Transfer
MATLS 3F03 - High-Temperature Materials Production
MATLS 3J03 - Statistical Methods for Materials Engineers
MATLS 3M03 - Mechanical Behaviour of Materials
MATLS 3T04 - Phase Transformations
MATLS 4I03 - Sustainable Manufacturing Processes
MATLS 4L04 - Materials Manufacturing
MATLS 4Z06 - Industrial Projects
are all chemical engineering stuff.
Only nice nano stuff courses are from that stream:
Nanomaterials MATLS 3Q03, 4FF3, 3 units from MATLS 4G03, 4H03
And of these, the only ones that appeal to me is:
MATLS 4G03 - Characterization of Nanomaterials
Interaction of electrons and photons with matter. Imaging methods with electron microscopy, scanning probe techniques, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and X-ray absorption analysis with high spatial resolution.
So, basically 2-3 courses on atomic stuff and everything else is a complete gibberish(TO ME).
So, as I have stated from the beginning, I really donot think that any program at Mac suits me at all. But, I really like Mac and have been doing pretty good here. I managed a cGPA of 3.92, or 11.2/12 on 6 courses on semester 1. I really like atoms and softwares(atoms first then software). But, at Mac, even if I go into Materials, neither society option nor technical electives at Materials have any software engineering stuff on the list. Should I transfer to Nanotechnology Engineering at University of Waterloo? They do also have a software engineering minor option over there. I am really torn right now. I have the grades for transfer too. The courses really appeal me over there.
Am I missing something here at Mac? Any help will really be appreciated. I know that the only program at Mac that best suits me is Materials Science and Engineering. Maybe engineering physics, but everyone at Mac have made me feel that there is no future with it, and it is a joke, which obviously is not true, but as many in this forum have mentioned, it is too broad and is really a jungle.
