Mechatronic Systems Engineering and Business Double Degree Program Major

Bachelor of Applied Science and Bachelor of Business Administration

This double-degree major program leads to a bachelor of applied science degree and a bachelor of business administration degree.

Admission Requirements

Admission is normally via the mechatronic systems engineering major (MSE). Students are admitted based on a CGPA of 3.0 obtained on the first 30 units of the mechatronic systems engineering major plus ECON 105. Otherwise, MSE majors may later gain admission by meeting the competitive requirements for entry into the Beedie School of Business. Beedie business students may gain admission by meeting the internal transfer requirements of the mechatronic systems engineering major.

Co-operative Education Work Experience

This double degree program includes a mandatory co-operative education program of at least three (3) and up to five (5) work terms of practical work experience. During the first two years, students may complete up to two optional co-op terms including one non-technical engineering experience (MSE 193) and one business practicum (BUS 225).

After the first two years, students complete three mandatory work terms, and it is strongly recommended that at least one is in engineering industry (MSE 293,393,493), one is in business (BUS 225, 325, 326, 327) and a third is in industry, business or in a special co-op term (MSE 294,394,494).

Special co-op terms may include, but is not restricted to, self-directed, entrepreneurial, service or research co-op work terms.

Permission of the FAS/Mechatronics co-op office is required.

Grade Requirements

A grade of C- or better in prerequisite courses is required to register in mechatronic systems engineering courses.

In addition to normal university grade point average requirements, the Beedie School of Business requires a minimum 2.30 overall SFU Business course grade point average for entry into all 300 and 400 division business courses.

A minimum 2.30 overall SFU Business course grade point average is required for graduation from a Business major, joint major, or double degree program.

For a course to be accepted as fulfilling a prerequisite, or for a lower division requirement, or for a core course to be accepted in a student's program in business, a student must have obtained a minimum grade of C- (C minus).

Program Requirements
