What is TechConnect all about?
An easier transition to university life...
TechConnect is a Faculty of Applied Sciences (FAS) cohort mentorship program designed to help you transition from high school to University. FAS advisors take care of your course registration for the first semester. The TechConnect cohort will be registered in the same lectures, labs, and tutorials. In addition to attending the same classes, you will also attend TechConnect meetings together which happen twice per month and are led by two student mentors. These meetings will give you the opportunity to participate in specialized workshops, advising sessions, and social activities.
Why should I take part?
The idea behind TechConnect is that people learn better in groups. We also wanted to take away some of the worries and stresses that students experience in their first semester. Your course timetable is planned for you. You will have an easier time connecting with peers and won’t feel isolated on a big university campus. In addition, you will benefit from the wisdom of a student mentor who is available to give you advice on student life. They also know where you can get the best — and cheapest — food on campus!
Who can participate?
You can participate in TechConnect if you are a high school student beginning your studies in fall 2019 in either Computing Science or Engineering Science at SFU’s Burnaby campus, or Sustainable Energy Engineering at SFU’s Surrey campus.
