How do you feel your education at Mac compares to other Universities?
Would you do things differently (university or degree choice-wise) if you knew what you know now?
This isn't a test or whatever. I just to know how people think.
I graduated from the Mechatronics Engineering program in 2012. During my studies I was somewhat disappointed with the program. It felt like the courses were just thrown together at the last minute. To give you an example Mechatronics students had to take an electrical course (3N03?) which was designed for Mechanical engineering students. The material covered was very basic stuff the Mechatronics students covered much earlier. It was just so ridiculous I could not believe it was happening and I was paying money for it. My thought process at the time was "Oh well, Mechatronics Engineering is still fairly new to the school. They are trying to figure things out and it will get better." I wish I brought it up at the time with the dept head looking back now.
I do not regret my program of choice rather the school I studied at. Speaking with alumni from other Universities around the world it only solidifies my feelings that McMaster University should have been on the bottom of my list.
