NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Award (Research Assistant)

Our undergraduate students can apply for summer jobs working with Mechatronic Systems Engineering faculty on real research. These positions are sponsored by NSERC, a Federal Government agency that supports university students in the pursuit of discovery research while fostering innovation.

Undergraduate Student Research Awards (USRA) are aimed at stimulating your interest in research in engineering and the natural sciences. If you would like to gain research work experience that complements your studies in an academic setting, these awards can provide you with a funded position in SFU Engineering Science. These positions can also give you real advantages for future awards: 70% of past USRA students went on to win NSERC Graduate Awards that paid for their graduate education.
