    Western University - UWO, Ontario, canada: 1 answered questions

    VIEW ALL

    Ques. Which university should I choose, University of Western Ontario or Ryerson University? I have been admitted to the Faculty of Engineering.

    ● Top Answer By Sonali Jain on 03 Feb 21

    Ans. Your experience is determined a lot by the city your college is in. With about 400,000 people, the city of London is comparatively small with very affordable housing. Thus, Western Ontario will be great for those looking for quiet and affordable education. Ranking wise, Ryerson University ranks #801-1000 and University of Western Ontario ranks #203 as per QS World Rankings. Both these universities have top-rated programs; however, Western has a better reputation than Ryerson due to its history and location, which is more affordable than Toronto. However, Ryerson is located in the heart of downtown Toronto which gives you access to many opportunities which you may miss in London. Ryerson, being seventy years old, is not a new university but it is half the age of Western which has grand old buildings and stately lawns that are even more than a hundred years old. The table below shows the comparison between the two colleges: Western has an employment rate of 91.5%, and Ryerson University has an employment rate of 86.7%, popular job profiles after engineering is:  Software Engineer - $55140. Project Engineer - $54374. Software Developer - $53608. Electrical Engineer - $52842. Civil Engineer - $52000. Mechanical Engineer - $48247. University of Western Ontario has been ranked #201-250, and Ryerson University has been ranked #601-800 by The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021 and by Engineering, Western University is ranked #251-300, and Ryerson University is ranked #301-400. QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2020 has ranked only Western University at #121-130. Western University has been ranked #9 and Ryerson University has been ranked #22 in Canada by The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021. Thus it is safe to say that both are indeed good universities.Read more

    I opted for this university amidst the rest I applied to because It was in the top 5 university of Canada that time. Due to worldwide acknowledgement and popularity in engineering sector, it attracted me the most. The admission process was as common as in other universities in which personal skills played a vital role in my selection here.

    Course Curriculum :

    My course duration was four years in which the first year was common for all the branches. In second year I opted for Software Systems for Ubiquitous Computing domain. My course curriculum was mainly focused on software engineering fundamentals, integration of hardware and software design considerations.

    I had applied to several universities in Ontario as my relative lives in that city. My cousin told me every thing about the selection process as he was an alumni of this college. Under his guidance I successfully cleared the whole process, and my online application was $100 here.

    Course Curriculum :

    In my course curriculum, a strong knowledge base in the core areas of mechanical engineering was provided with the touch of practical aspects of engineering mechanisms. My first year was common year in which I studied all branches common syllabus, and in fourth year I had completed a major Mechanical Engineering Design Project by working closely with my faculty members and linked industry partners.

    After doing my bachelors, I wanted to pursue master but not from my home country, so I went to an education counselor who suggested me to apply for universities in Canada as they have better services for international students and I agreed with him. With that said, I applied for about 4 universities in Canada on their recommendation and Western University was the only one that accepted my admission. To apply here, I had to pay $120 and submit my form at OUAC portal.

    Course Curriculum :

    My MEng programs was structured to assist us in the advancement of our professional careers and to provide us with the skills necessary to address key technological challenges. It is a course-based degree that may be a combination of course work and a project, or complete course-work. I used to study in this program on full-time basis, so it took me about a year to complete it.

    Being an international student, I had to consider the diversity of the university and the percentage of the international students and Western University had a pretty good percent of students from different countries and the university is known to be student-centric, so I was convinced to apply for it. The application fee that I had to pay for the online submission of my form was $160.

    Course Curriculum :

    My full-time 4-year program of computer science is providing me with a foundation enabling us to adapt to new technologies and new ideas in an information-driven world. The curriculum is helping me to enhance my creativity and engage intellectual curiosity to recognize the deeper patterns formed from observations, experimentation, facts, and probabilities.

    I mainly chose Western because of its well known reputation across the globe and the standard of education. It matched my expectations of a university.

    Course Curriculum :

    In this course, you can choose whatever subjects you like. It has core courses like Solid Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics and Materials Science. It also has courses which you rarely see elsewhere like Impact biomechanics and so on. Since it is a one year course, it gets pretty hectic as you will have lots to study in little time.
