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 funding 
for multiple years in the form 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.

Our specialized areas of research include, but are not limited to the 
- Interactive Computing (visualization, human-computer interaction, 
artificial intelligence, tangible interfaces, virtual reality, game 
design and technology and other themes)
- Media, Visual Arts and Performance (performance technology, 
interactive animation, interactive environments and installations, game 
narrative, film and video, audio/music, digital curation, and other themes)
- Design (parametric design, sustainable design, interaction design, 
game design, museum design, design for children and the elderly, and 
other related themes)
- People (cognitive, perceptual, and social psychology, history, 
anthropology and ethnography of media, chronic pain management, and 
health data management)
- Science of Interaction uses the scientific method to develop and test 
theories of human perceptual, cognitive, interactive, and communicative 
performance that are used to design, prototype, and evaluate interactive 
systems in their context of use.

Simon Fraser University (SFU) at Surrey is the University’s newest 
campus located in the greater Vancouver region of British Columbia. This 
region is home to one of the central nodes of Canada’s cultural 
and entertainment industry and much of its digital media production. The 
region’s rich cultural, natural and intellectual resources make it one 
of the world’s most desirable places to live and work. SIAT works as a 
unit of the Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology (FCAT), is a 
member of many local, national, and international networks, and has 
strong connections to leading companies.
