Master of Applicated Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

Student (Current Employee)
Ottawa, ON (Canada)

I have been working at University of Ottawa full-time for less than a year

ProsThis is a well-known university with a high level of education quality. Studying in Ottawa also provides students an opportunity to experience Canadian culture in capital city.

ConsLanguage is the first problem, and culture difference is also a trouble to all international students.

Advice to Senior ManagementMaking some friends from different countries can help a lot in my opinion. Those compatriots who had lived in Canada for several years will offer international students useful advices and relevant experiences in all kinds of aspects.

TA

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at University of Ottawa

ProsThe job is only a half TA, but the workload is large. University give half TA because the class is small, but did not take the difficulty of the course into consideration.

ConsWorking as a TA on campus, the salary is great and the teacher is really nice. Hope I could have done the work very well to not disappoint the professor and the students.
