The next step in your transition to university
What is TechConnect?
TechConnect is a first-year experience program aimed to ease your transition from high school into the Faculty of Applied Sciences (FAS) at SFU. Whether you’re in Computing Science, Engineering Science, Mechatronic Systems Engineering, Software Systems, or Sustainable Energy Engineering, TechConnect’s focus is to make entering university a stress-free and welcoming experience.
Why should I participate?
Each live chat session, held bi-weekly, will cover important information helping you to make the most of your university experience. Sessions will cover a diverse range of topics, from high-tech careers with industry experts, to ways to get involved with clubs and student unions on campus. Academic advisors will be on hand each session to assist you with course planning and answer your questions.
Make immediate connections
As a TechConnect mentee, you’ll have the added benefit of connecting with student mentors declared in the same major and learn first-hand about what to expect from your coursework and where the best (and cheapest) food is on campus! Every session you’ll also have an opportunity to connect with your peers and socialize. Through TechConnect we want you to feel welcomed and part of our Applied Sciences community.
