The Faculty of Applied Sciences is home to a number of student societies, groups and teams that host a variety of activites throughout the academic year. There are many opportunities to get involved in the student community including: social events, networking nights, competitions, career fairs, and industry field trips.

We encourage our students to make the most of their time at SFU and that these connections and experiences will last beyond your undergraduate years.


Join a club, student society, or design team while you pursue your studies at SFU. Our student groups host events, activities, competitions and more!  


Get involved on campus with one of our student engagement programs or events - like TechConnect, FAS Mentorship, or tech competitions.


Want to learn more about the student experience from real students? Connect with us via virtual chat or read more about their journey online.


The Faculty of Applied Sciences is not just about robots and code! Our students form tight-knit communities on and off campus. See for yourself!
