Instead I was given a number to call and discuss it with the program department. I was also told that the program does not offer co-op in the three year program (six semesters), whereas Centennial offers PTY/co-op in its three year program. At Centennial, I would have to complete five semesters/2.5 years, then do the PTY/co-op for a year, and return to the college to finish the last semester, so it's actually 3.5 years or 9 semesters.
I have also received acceptance to the Mechanical Engineering Technology-Design program and the Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology-Automation and Robotics program at Centennial. Both have accreditation with the CCTT and offer PTY/co-op. I also noticed the course outlines were similar but a bit different between George Brown and Centennial.
So for George Brown,
Pros: one hour walking distance one-way, lower tuition
Cons: non-accredited, no co-op
And for Centennial,
Pros: accredited, offers PTY/co-op
Cons: two hour transportation by TTC one-way, transportation costs, higher tuition
With these considered, it might be better if I go to Centennial for the program, hope I finish and find a job in the field.
And when I was in high school, I saw similar career posters. There were a lot more jobs that didn't require math, but I didn't want those jobs either!
