Life in Electrical & Computer Engineering

A Waterloo Engineering Student Blog


Hey ya’ll!

I know I haven’t been posting frequently since August of my work term….It’s because I’ve been pretty damn busy since then. I had to work on my work report, my technical presentation (a milestone for students in 2B ECE), Engineering Orientation Week 2015, Hack the North, course work, a ton of interviews, blah blah blah…

I  was planning on making a post on Orientation Week and Hack the North early on in September, but unfortunately I was sick for a good week after when everything was over! And as a result, I had to catch up on lectures, labs, basically everything.

Now that hell week is right around the corner for me, that post that I wanted to do now gets pushed even further back into November, which is ridiculous since both OWeek and HTN was ~two months ago.

But yea, that’s how things are going right now. I will try to get my s*** together and finish up that long overdue post. 😛 Hopefully things are going well for you! All of the best!

      Oh man, bringing back high school marks…

      All I can say is that the bulk of my marks have been in the low to mid 90s. But mind you, this was two years ago. Especially programs in the Faculty or Math and Engineering, the entrance requirements are becoming more competitive every year. Having extra curriculars will definitely help your average out.

      I can’t say whether or not SATEC has a good reputation in Waterloo, but you should be OK. From what I have seen, all SATEC students are able to get through each term – you don’t see them failing, so at the very least you can say that SATEC doesn’t have a bad reputation. Hope this helps!
