Mechatronic Systems Engineering

Be One of The Leaders in Tomorrow’s Technology

Mechatronic Systems Engineering (MSE) at SFU can put you there. Offering one of the first Bachelor degree programs of its kind in North America, SFU Mechatronics is defining the future of engineering’s freshest and most exciting discipline.

First-year students on the Surrey campus will be admitted to Engineering Science via Systems One.

Systems One

Systems One is a new cohort program for students entering their first year of studies in the Faculty of Applied Sciences at SFU Surrey.  Combining core courses in both Software Systems and Mechatronics, this technologically innovative, direct entry program was created to capitalize upon existing synergies between the two program areas and to provide students with a streamlined pathway into Surrey-based programs in the Faculty of Applied Sciences.

Beginning Fall 2010, all students intending to complete programs in Mechatronic Systems Engineering (School of Engineering Science) will complete their first year within Systems One.

The Systems One program is based upon a core set of shared courses and is characterized by the following features:

  • small class sizes
  • increased interaction between students, faculty and staff
  • enhanced sense of community amongst students
  • strong cross-disciplinary collaboration
  • a team-based environment similar to that found in many high technology workplaces

After completing Systems One, MSE students will advance to second year in the Mechatronic Systems Engineering program.

What is Mechatronic Systems Engineering (MSE)?

  • a 4 year multidisciplinary engineering program
  • uniquely integrates mechanical, electronics, control, software, and computer engineering for the development of electromechanical products and systems
  • used in a range of industries including automotive, manufacturing, robotics, biomedical, service, aerospace, consumer electronics, and countless others

What are the benefits of a Mechatronic Systems Engineering (MSE) degree?

  • completion of a BASc degree in 4 years
  • a strong base in science with a focus in electrical, mechanical, software, control, and computer engineering
  • a minimum of 1 year of related industry work experience through participation in the Engineering Science Co-operative Education program
  • the ability to communicate effectively as a result of our unique integrated technical communication program
  • entrepreneurial and business skills
  • command of the newest technologies
