Program Information

School: Simon Fraser University
Faculty: Faculty of Applied Science
Degree: Bachelor; Co-op
Field of Study: Systems Engineering
Description: Systems engineers study electronics, mechanical design, and computer hardware and software, and integrate these components into one system. Students go on to to become versatile engineers working in fileds such as robotics, automation, image processing, and analysis. Systems Engineering is an option in the Engineering Science program. For more information on the co-op education program, please visit

This systems option prepares students for careers in design and integration of computer-controlled machines, and for graduate study in robotics, control and mechatronic systems. Students integrate knowledge from electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, and computer engineering into the fundamental design process. This focused program includes study of mechanical structures and mechanisms, electro-mechanical sensors and actuators, control engineering, and real-time systems. Electives may be used to tailor curriculum to specific interests.
