SFU launches Professional Master's of Engineering program in Mechatronic Product Realization

February 17, 2015

SFU will be introducing a 16-month professional program for practising engineers seeking new expertise to enhance their careers, and for Internationally Trained Engineers (ITEs) keen to improve their career prospects through a post-graduate qualification from a leading Canadian engineering school.

The Professional Master's of Engineering program in Mechatronic Product Realization (MPR) trains students to incorporate rapidly changing information technologies into leading-edge product development techniques and processes with state-of-the-art manufacturing systems.

Mechatronics is a multi-disciplinary engineering field that incorporates three areas of study: mechanical, electrical and computer engineering. Given the rapid growth of new information technologies, digital circuits and additive manufacturing technologies, the market for new mechatronic products is growing exponentially in all industry sectors, including consumer products and electronics, automotive, medical, industrial and aerospace.

Offered by the School of Mechatronic Systems Engineering at Simon Fraser University, this professional program provides students with a premier curriculum—through dedicated courses, design projects, and industrial co-ops—to stay competitive in product design and manufacturing.
