    I have been working at University of Waterloo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Co-op is a big plus. Employers include Google, Microsoft, IBM, Pinterest, Facebook among many other less-know companies. The studies are challenging and require time and dedication.

    Cons

    There is less time for self-learning technologies and a lot of stuff that we are taught in first and second year includes topics like Kinematics, Chemistry, Linear Circuits which might are usually not directly useful or related to software engineering. These are bare minimum subjects to call "software engineering" an "engineering degree. Thus, time is consumed learning things which are not needed for jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the program more CS related than have so many extraneous things to learn. I understand problem solving ability improvement is important but that can be inculcated through CS related courses as well.
