FAS TechConnect

The next step in your transition to university

What is TechConnect?

The SFU FAS TechConnect is a student-experience program aimed to ease your transition from high school into the Faculty of Applied Sciences (FAS) at SFU. Each session is aimed at helping you to make the most of your university experience - socially, academically, and professionally.

TechConnect involves a series of sessions throughout Fall and Spring. Our sessions offer:

  • Make lifelong friends in your program
  • Fun social activities
  • Connect with student mentors
  • Opportunities for skill development
  • Study prep sessions
  • Career-related workshops
  • Program-related workshops
  • Health & Wellness sessions

Plus, complementary food and beverages will be served at each session!

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 life at SFU!

Win prizes

TechConnect students are automatically entered to win gift cards at the end of each session. A grand prize (valued at approx. $500) will be drawn at the end of the semester too!

What students say about TechConnect

“Biggest takeaway for me is that TechConnect really helps ease the stress of being a first year. I am very glad that I managed to be a part of this program. I've created new friends who are in first year and upper year that can help me on later on. I really liked TechConnect and it was one of the things I looked forward to [my first semester].

“I really enjoyed seeing the same familiar faces in my classes and making great acquaintances. Most of all, the mentor sessions were very helpful - especially being able to ask for help in person, without a rushed time constraint, and on a student to student basis.”

“It’s already super engaging and useful for any student, it familiarized us with so much and really helped me transition to university”
 

“Thank you very much!!! I could not imagine my first semester without it.”
 

“I made a couple of friends there that I now hang out with a lot. The connections helped a lot.”
