Overview

Students undertake a basic core of pure, applied and engineering sciences followed by studies in a specialized option. The general BASc program may be completed in eight academic terms plus a minimum of three co-op terms.

ENSC courses emphasize learning, conceptualization, design and analysis. Built into the program are courses on social impacts of technology, finance, management, design methods and entrepreneurship intended to complement scientific studies. A special, integrated communications course completed throughout the program ensures that all graduates have the communication skills necessary to be effective engineers.

The dynamic, on-going development and application of computer and digital systems requires computer systems engineers to have a balanced capability in software and hardware, and a solid engineering base.This Engineering Science program is offered by Simon Fraser University.

Co-operative Education Work Experience

Every engineering science student completes three (3) work terms of practical experience in an appropriate industrial or research setting leading to a project under the technical direction of a practising engineer or scientist. The goal is a complementary combination of work in an industrial or research setting and study in one of the engineering options. The internship may be within the University but in most cases the work site is off campus.
