"The co-op placements through the University of Windsor helped me see my potential and improved my chances in finding full-time positions after graduation. The classes that helped me the most in achieving my goals were Electronics, Analog Circuit Design, Electromagnetic Waves, Embedded System Design, and many other courses."

"I chose engineering because I wanted to make a change in the world. The foundation of knowledge and engineering mindset I gained during my time at the University of Windsor has definitely done that for me. Be it my bioremediation research work in Northern Delhi, opportunities within the campus entrepreneurial community to develop my own business or simply participating in intramural sports leagues, there has been no shortage of opportunities for development and professional growth in the University of Windsor campus."
