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 requires the completion of a minimum of three mandatory engineering co-operative education work terms (MSE 293/294, MSE 393/394, and MSE 493/494). Dual-degree students may also take up to two additional co-op terms in Business (BUS 225, 325, 326, 327, 328). These additional co-op terms will NOT count towards the three mandatory engineering co-op terms.

Minimum Grade Requirements

A minimum grade of C- is required in all courses that are used to fulfill mechatronic systems engineering program requirements.

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

Students complete all of
