About Engineering Science
We invite you to learn more about the School of Engineering Science at Simon Fraser University.
We are not a traditional engineering school – we focus on innovative and personal instruction combined with a program emphasizing advanced technologies such as biomedical, micro-electronics, communications, signal processing, systems engineering, and computers. Our core programs are challenging in order to prepare students to be innovators of tomorrow in a high-tech world.
The School of Engineering Science is in the Faculty of Applied Sciences, along with the School of Computing Science and the School of Mechatronics Systems Engineering. It has strong interdisciplinary ties with many departments at SFU, including Mathematics, Physics, Kinesiology and Physiology.
Engineering Science was established in 1983 at SFU and offers both undergraduate and graduate programs.
Our research covers a range of emerging areas and our faculty members maintain strong links with industry, research institutes and non-profit organizations. We offer a personal program that prides itself on quality.
