Dalhousie Univ, canada cs grad degree
Anybody have any idea on the cs grad program there?
Never heard of it, and I doubt any major employer in the industry has either. If you don't have a degree from one of the top 25 or so schools, it's basically irrelevant where you get it from.
The CS program at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia is pretty good. But the most famous is U of Waterloo. At the end of the day however it really depends on what you do with your time at a Uni and what you are aiming for.
If you are going for name rercognition for CS in canada, Waterloo is pretty much the premiere school. Although I think that there Combinatorics & Optimization department pretty much carries the CS department due to their naturally tight relationship. Things like Elliptical Encryption schemes have come from grads at UW.
I nearly went to Waterloo 28 years ago for my undergraduate degree, and I still to this day regret not doing it.

Dalhousie does have at least one super-genius alumni...
And after Dalhouise Erik Demaine did his M.Math and Ph.d. at Waterloo.
Some guys who work/ed on the OpenBSD kernel went to Dalhousie... (don't know if that's good or bad). Go check www.monkey.org
I am familiar with Canadian tech education scene.
Anyone know about McGill?
