Master of Engineering in Electrical and Computer Engineering - Batch of 2023
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
A diverse educational institution.
Tips: After moving here you have more responsibility and maturity. You develop a sense of responsibility where you have to work and earn for yourself and your family in a better way. Independence is what you learn. I am very much satisfied. It can be hard for some people as there is a huge cultural gap but it is easy to come around it.
Likes (Public transportation): Campus is about 3-4 kms from the city, easily accessible by public transportation. You can stay close to the university as well. Very affordable for students who have less income due to part-time jobs. They can get low income transit passes which is the cheapest.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): Depends on the type of work, but usually between 15-20 companies are available. Starting salary is 65,000-70,000 CAD/year depending on the different job descriptions. For instance, my field is masters in project management so that was my starting salary.

Good place to settle in, friendly people.
Tips: You will find lots of Indian students here, at least in graduate school. So I can safely assume that you won't face any cultural shift unless you are enrolled in some other field. There are almost no scholarships in engineering unless you are an MS student. However, there are bursaries available depending on your expenses and student income.
Likes (Permanent Immigration): I think Alberta is the best province if you are planning to get settled here. It has many immigrant-friendly programs for PR. It has lower tax rates and there are more opportunities here in the engineering field. If you love to live near nature then I think you won't find any other province as good as this.
Dislikes (Internships): Less direct internship opportunities are available for graduate students. Although the university has a dedicated department for career building most of its activities revolve around undergrads. As a graduate student, you are expected to work on your own.

Balanced Review, If you have patience and hard-working attitude then Canada is the country for you.
Tips: Reach out to Professors and ask them for TA and RA. This will help you a lot in gaining experience and also earning more than minimum wage. If you are planning for Canada then have a high level of patience. Things go very slowly. You can hear after 4 months about an interview. University fees are very high. Make sure you know your budget and then make a decision.
Likes (Safety): University handled well during COVID. Even though classes were offline, all the precautions were maintained. They supplied enough support on health and hygiene. Exams were conducted online during COVID. Also, there were very few cases in Alberta compared to other provinces.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): The University of Calgary doesn't provide its students with any career support. They conduct career fair and information sessions, but it is always crowded, and you cannot meet with the employers. They only call a few companies which have offices in Alberta.

One of the best quality system.
Tips: Coming to a new foreign country meant adjusting to a new culture, but the friendly campus community made it smoother. I am very satisfied with my university and courses. This university provides a diverse and enriching academic experience. Plus studying in Canada is a joy due to its welcoming atmosphere and stunning nature around us.
Likes (Public transportation): Our university campus has good connections to the city through buses and a Train light rail. Public transportation here is affordable and efficient, especially with the pass for students. It's easy to get around the city for shopping and entertainment, making life at the University of Calgary more enjoyable.
Dislikes (Quality of faculty): At the university of Calgary professors in my department are friendly and easy to approach. We have a unique teaching method that includes a lot of hands-on learning, which I find very helpful. Our teaching faculty comes from all over the world, making our classes diverse and interesting.

Amazing city to be in and university is a great place to get a world exposure
Tips: I attended University of Calgary for Masters in Data Science and Analytics course. The course structure was good but when it comes to instructors for this course some are good but some are average. Also given it is a one year course it is fast-paced and you'll have a lot of assignments every week along with the projects and other deadlines. Lastly, internship is an important part of the program and don't expect the university to find one for you. You need to take the initiative to find your internship. Overall University has a good infrastructure and has all the facilities available for students. Also, Calgary is affordable when it comes to living expenses and safety is great.
