Fall 2020 Update

Virtual Reception:

As we head into what will be our second full remote semester, we are making further efforts to provide better communication and support to our current and incoming students. In support of that, a virtual front desk/receptionist has been setup to direct questions to the appropriate administration, lab/technical staff , and faculty members. Please use the following methods to contact the Engineering Sciences’ Office Assistant:

enscoa@sfu.ca / 778-782-5723

Your inquires will then be directed shortly after and addressed

Again, we understand that these are unprecedented and challenging times, but we are all in this together and we are here to support you as you persevere and continue studies.

Most classes will continue to be delivered through remote methods in the fall term. If allowed by government and health authorities, and provided that personal health and safety can be maintained, we will open selected courses for in-person instructional activities where the learning objectives cannot easily be replicated through remote instruction (e.g., laboratory-based classes).

We will identify which in-person courses and activities will be allowed, and we will share that information as soon as we can.

We will ensure that remote learning and teaching provides a high-quality experience, and ensure that students who expect to graduate in the 2020/2021 academic year are able to meet their degree requirements.

We will continue to enhance remote learning support for students and instructors.

We will look at ways to simplify and/or streamline academic requirements to enable students to progress through their programs more easily.

Student supports and services will continue to be delivered remotely, with some services offered in-person, subject to health and safety guidelines.
