First-of-its-kind engineering program readies SFU students for emerging green industries
Second-year engineering student Danielle Arciaga faces a tough decision once she graduates from Simon Fraser University—which emerging green industry should she choose: clean tech or smart cities. Arciaga will be transferring into SFU’s Sustainable Energy Engineering (SEE) program this fall and will be immersing herself in these areas before deciding which to focus on.
The SEE program, the first of its kind in Western Canada, is preparing its students for high-demand sectors such as cleantech, renewable energy, smart cities, sustainable manufacturing, clean power generation and utilization, and sustainable food and water solutions.
To help prepare students like Arciaga, this Faculty of Applied Sciences program takes a unique approach to curriculum by incorporating courses from other disciplines, including the Faculty of Science, Beedie School of Business and the Faculty of Environment.
