“The University of Waterloo’s engineering and technology faculty areas rank among the top 50 in the world according to results published today.
The rankings, published by UK firm Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), saw Waterloo leapfrog other Canadian universities like McGill and University of British Columbia in the Engineering and Technology faculty area for the first time.
The results also saw Waterloo rise in the top 200 schools worldwide to reach 180 overall, up from 191 in 2012.”

Our strong ranking this year is a clear sign that our focus on excellence in research along with experiential learning is delivering exceptional quality graduates that employers covet,” said Feridun Hamdullahpur, president and vice-chancellor of Waterloo. “We have set a clear goal to be one of the top innovation universities in the world, these results indicate we are on the right path.”
