4th year, Electrical Engineering
“The excellent CO-OP program at the University of Ottawa is one of the main reasons I chose to attend this university, since it gives me the opportunity to earn valuable on-the-job experience that is crucial for succeeding in my field. I am passionate about this program and devote as much hard work to it as I do to my other electrical engineering courses.”
Ever since he was very young, Andrew always knew that he wanted to become an engineer. His passion for creating and problem solving led him to this choice of program. After three years of study and CO-OP terms in Electrical Engineering he is confident he made the right decision. For his hard work and dedication, Andrew received the 2011 CO-OP Student of the Year Award from the University of Ottawa. Alongside classes and jobs, Andrew believes in the importance of a well-balanced life—he writes and produces his own music (another passion of his), maintains his health by going to the gym and also finds time to volunteer at the University.
