SUPPORTING STUDENT SUCCESS. HELPING THEM ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS.

Helping students achieve their potential

As the parent of a prospective SFU Mechatronic Systems Engineering student, you will be fully focused on ensuring your child selects the best degree for their future while joining a supportive community of students, staff and faculty.

As this may be the first time your son or daughter lives away from home, you will want to be sure they have every opportunity to thrive academically and socially in a safe environment. SFU offers advice and resources to help you and your child make the transition – including our popular annual parent orientation night (contact fasreach@sfu.ca for details).
