Alumni and Friends

At SFU Applied Sciences, we place a high value on interacting with our alumni and industry partners for many reasons:

  • Our alumni and industry supporters provide students with numerous professional development opportunities through lectures, awards, career and co-op programs.
  • Through co-op, students complement their academic learning, often returning to the classroom with a fresh outlook.
  • By giving students an opportunitiy to work on applied research issues, they can see their results make an impact on the community.
  • Innovation can flourish when faculty, together with industry, access joint funding for collaborative partnerships that support both fundamental and later-stage research.
