SystemsFair (formerly MechExpo) is the Engineering Career Fair at Simon Fraser University (SFU)’s Surrey Campus. Created in 2014, SystemsFair provides a venue for engineering students to meet with employers in the industry one-on-one, and get a feel for the tech community and the opportunities available to them, and for employers to scout student talent and gain exposure for their organizations.
SFU’s Surrey campus is an emerging technology hub where over 800 students are working towards their MSE or SoSy degree. Companies and organizations take advantage of the co-operative education (co-op) program to recruit top mechatronics engineers and software developers from SFU, often offering internship to connect with these talents early.
About SFU Surrey
Located in the heart of Surrey, SFU’s Surrey campus is an emerging technology hub where more than 800 students are working towards their degrees in Mechatronic Systems Engineering (MSE) and Software Systems (SoSy). The MSE program is unique to provide students with training in mechanical, electrical, software, and systems engineering, and the SoSy program is uniquely structured to model industry settings with project-based and team-oriented courses. MSE and SoSy attracts bright and talented students by providing exciting career prospects, ample research opportunities, and a well-rounded curriculum. Additionally, some of SFU's most successful student design teams are based out of Surrey campus.
About Mechatronic Systems Engineering
Mechatronic Systems Engineering is unique to combine education in mechanical, electrical, software, and systems engineering. MSE alumni successfully work in these fields in organizations ranging from small startups to Fortune 500 companies. Increased emphasis on effective communication and teamwork within the MSE program is what sets the students up for successful careers - a mechatronics engineer will facilitate the flow of technical knowledge within the team.
About Software Systems
Software Systems is an applied specialization of Computing Science which highly emphasizes the creation of efficient and effective software in addition to traditional theoretical studies. The program challenges students with courses which are project-based and team-oriented to provide students with the skills and aptitude to succeed in industry. Software Systems is a practical and relevant program, and our graduates have worked at, or interned at, Facebook, Apple, Samsung, SAP, etc.
