SFU’s Big Data Hub empowers people to unlock big data for research, education and community impact
Simon Fraser University is building on over a decade of leadership in the field of big data, investing in advanced research computing to accelerate scholarship and innovation, raise awareness of big data in every field of study, and mobilize knowledge for real world impact.
What We Do
Established in 2016, SFU's Big Data Hub continues to strengthen SFU's reputation as a leading data science institution. The Big Data Hub enables the convergence of data-driven expertise linking computing science to gender studies, statistics to climate change modelling, criminal justice to mathematics, epidemiology to policy and more.
Where most universities invest in depth, SFU also invested in breadth that leveraged all its expertise to generate more powerful insights and solutions that are directly relevant to our communities.
We foster connections and collaborations through tools, training and expertise. This enables people to apply data-intensive methods for innovations in teaching, research and community impact.
We equip students with the skills and experience to be job-ready.
We are accelerating scholarship and innovation across all eight SFU Faculties by bringing new data tools and resources to all members of our campus community.
We forge transformative partnerships to solve problems that matter.
