The School of Interactive Arts & Technology (SIAT) is an internationally recognized interdisciplinary school with a focus on technology and the human experience. SIAT MSc., MA, and Ph.D. students develop and apply innovative multi-disciplinary research methods to explore the broader implications of advanced information and media technologies. Guided by these studies, they design new technology and media experiences that are responsive to individual, organizational, and societal values. SIAT’s infrastructure includes state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities at Simon Fraser University’s Surrey campus, combined with the capabilities of our many university collaborators and partner organizations in the public and private sectors.

Students admitted to our graduate program can expect to receive multiple years of scholarships and or research and teaching assistantships. SIAT graduate students are mentored in interdisciplinary research methods, international academic publishing and conference presentation, and curation and exhibition of media arts both locally and abroad.

Our program’s unique focus at the intersection of media arts, science, and computing prepares graduates for diverse careers in the technology sector and in academia. SIAT alumni hold leading positions in industry and in tenure-track positions in institutions around the world.
