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 fulfil 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

BUS 360W - Business Communication (4)

Helps students develop professional writing- and speaking-based communication strategies they can confidently adapt to a wide range of business situations. The course aims to raise their communication performance to a professionally acceptable level, rather than to memorize or theorize about communication knowledge: this is a “learn-by-doing” course. Students will improve their ability to conceptualize, analyze/evaluate, synthesize, and apply information to guide their thinking and finished products across various business contexts. As teamwork is a fundamental skill valued by employers, students will participate in a major team project to learn about and apply best practices for collaboration with respect to professional business communication. The primary means of instruction and learning is guided practice in both writing and presenting in response to realistic business contexts. Instruction and assessment focus on both the process of creating professional, finished products, as well as the quality of those products. Prerequisite: This course is open to students admitted prior to Fall 2014 to the business administration major, honours, or second degree program and who have 45 units, OR to students admitted Fall 2014 - Summer 2017 to the business administration major, honours, or second degree program and who have 45 units and BUS 130 or (BUS 201 or BUS 202) or BUS 301, with a minimum grade of C-, OR to students admitted Fall 2017 – Summer 2022 to the business administration major, honours, or second degree program and who have 45 units and BUS 130 or (BUS 201 or BUS 202) or BUS 301, and BUS 217W, both with a minimum grade of C-, OR to students admitted Fall 2022 onwards to the business administration major, honours, or second degree program, and who have 45 units; BUS 217W and (BUS 201 or BUS 202), both with a minimum grade of C-; and Corequisite: BUS 300, OR to business administration joint major or joint honours students with BUS 217W with a minimum grade of C- and 45 units, OR to business and economics joint major students with ECON 220W with a minimum grade of C- and 45 units, OR to mechatronic systems engineering and business administration double degree students with 45 units, OR to management systems science or actuarial science majors with 45 units OR to data science major with BUS 217W with a minimum grade of C- and 45 units.
