Never had any problems finding an internship, very good internship program.
They encourage you to use tools more often than not, rather than memory and hand. (Good or bad thing, I'd say it depends on the course).
Honestly fairly easy, though I did a full semester at the University of Victoria and in retrospective, it was easy too (a bit harder because it was in English and because of the way the workload was distributed over the semester - always having something to do and hand out...I'd say UVIC was more time consuming than hard - anyway).
Not known outside of the province even though they do good in competition.
Not as practical as I hoped it would be since most students at the ETS already have a technical background with a lot of practical experience...
Mostly what I expected. I'm aware of competition thing, just I think a lot of it has to do with them doing a technical DEP rather than most university engineers students in QC doing a pre-university program. We have less hands on experience at first IMO. I only do my specific field engineering classes in my 3rd year. I do some math, physics, science and occasional class related to design or misc in my first 2 years. If I were to take part in a competition during my 3rd year I wouldn't have half the technical knowledge of a person at ETS however I heard you guys do our math(in 1st 2 years) in your 3rd or 4th years so you guys do a lot of technical stuff first and some math later? I don't know, it's opposite for us I guess.
By the way, I hate school, it's not for me, but I do it cuz I have to. I gotta study all weekend and all week for midterms, I hate it.
