Dynamic programs and partnerships

Our students acquire a rich foundation of skills then work with our faculty to drive and develop new ideas within our five main program areas: biomedical engineering, computer engineering, electronics engineering, engineering physics and systems engineering.

Offering undergraduate and graduate programs at the university’s mountaintop Burnaby Campus, we have active and highly productive ties with other SFU departments as well as invaluable real-world partnerships with businesses and enterprises in this region and beyond.

Our mandatory co-op is a program highlight for many students, opening doors to their future careers after graduation.
