    7.2 /10

    I remember being in grade 11 when York visited my high school ( DPS R.K Puram ) and I remember it being something out of the movies. I was blown away from the size and infrastructure of the campus at time. After talking about this to my parents, I approached several study abroad agencies and went with IDP. York has a reasonable fee structure as compared to other universities in the region along with this it also has a dedicated engineering school and the workload and social life were lighter and better when compared to premier universities such as UoWaterloo ( According to research on Reddit )

    Course Curriculum :

    The curriculum of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering are very similar due to them being in the same department so a lot of calculus, physics and chemistry. Just to put in prospective, there is about a 40% dropout rate in transition from first year to second year so the program is one of the toughest in Canada. As the program progressed, I remember putting to no time in to 4 hours a day just to keep up with my professors. So yes the curriculum is rewarding but not at all easy. Treating it like high school initially was my mistake. Considering take core courses with electives like Language courses
