Currently, McMaster University is ranked 6th in Canada in Best Engineering Programs by the Maclean Magazine. At McMaster, the Faculty of Engineering offers all undergraduate engineering students a common first year, Engineering I. This gives students a full academic year to learn about all of McMaster's engineering focus disciplines. The academically rigorous engineering programs taught by first-class faculty have made McMaster one of the leading engineering schools in North America and the world. There is also an industrial internship program, where students can take a year off and work 12–16 months at a company. Students must apply to the companies and get the job, although the career center helps with the whole process. The internship program is better than co-op because students get to learn and solve real-world problems.
