Welcome to the School of Interactive Arts & Technology

The School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT), located at SFU's Surrey Campus, is an interdisciplinary research-focused school where technologists, artists, designers, and theorists collaborate in innovative research and immersive study.

A degree in Interactive Arts and Technology prepares students to play a leading role in the conception of new media and the design of inventive technologies. A SIAT education combines the science of human experience, the analysis of media and culture, the creation of original and experimental works of art, and the implementation of new technologies. Students bring these resources to bear on the most vital and innovative sectors of the economy, building the technologies and experiences that increasingly shape our lives.
