About the Faculty
Technology Leaders Start Here
In the Faculty of Applied Sciences, we are shaping tomorrow’s technology leaders in computing science and engineering. We offer challenging areas of study complemented by unique learning experiences to foster a spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship, professional growth and leadership ability.
Today, we have more than 4,000 undergraduate and 600 graduate students in the Schools of Computing Science, Engineering Science, Mechatronic Systems Engineering and Sustainable Energy Engineering.
Creating Opportunities Through Partnerships
While our students develop their core technical skills, they also engage in broader learning experiences to build leadership and professional skills. The Faculty of Applied Sciences collaborates with SFU faculties and schools on campus, overseas universities, and local and international industry partners. Learn more about the Computing Science Distinguished Lecture Series. These collaborations open up a wide range of academic, research, cultural and workplace opportunities for both our students and our faculty members.
Research in Computing and Engineering Can Change the Future
Our mission is to conduct research that will make a significant impact socially, economically and intellectually. Our faculty, students and alumni are involved in local and international partnerships, and we maintain strong industry relationships to conduct research with practical and future commercial applications. Some areas of research include biomedical engineering, sustainable energy, mechatronics, natural language processing, network systems, computer imaging and medical computing, among many others.
