Simon Fraser University will be adding 500 seats to its technology-related programs, thanks to funding from the Government of British Columbia. The seats will be added to existing programs in the faculties of science, applied sciences, arts and social sciences, and the Beedie School of Business over the next four years. SFU will also receive $2M to cover start-up costs, classroom and lab renovations, and equipment upgrades. “This investment allows us to be creative and develop more industry-focused programs and courses, with an increased emphasis on ‘doing’ – students working with industry and solving problems – so it’s great for our students,” said SFU Professor Derek Bingham. SFU states that the investment is part of a broader, provincial investment in technology education.
