Welcome.
“For centuries technology has mediated our interactions with each other and with the world. The increasingly rapid development of technology, especially computing technology, has created an urgent and enduring need to understand and direct this mediation. We need to know how technology affects our lives and extends our senses. We need to create new technologies that help us perceive, think, interact, learn, work and play in productive, sustaining and ethical ways. We need to identify and develop human skills that will enable full use of these technologies in the service of our personal, cultural, social and economic goals.

Current knowledge is inadequate to this task. New technologies arise swiftly with poor or incomplete understanding of their social consequences. Frequently, technologies are crude, overly individualistic, or serve only narrow commercial ends. Often they fail to meaningfully enable us. Creating better technology in human terms is a crucial issue of our time.

Within this humanistic focus, our program in Computing Arts and Design Sciences seeks to create better technology in human terms. We invite applications from all academic disciplines. We have particular expertise in computing, art, design, learning, business, bioinformatics, cognition, performing arts, social science and cultural studies. If you want to learn about technology and how we make and use it, and if you enjoy working with a vibrant and diverse group of faculty and fellow students, our program is for you.”

- Rob Woodbury, Graduate Program Chair

“When I was looking for a graduate program to join, four “must haves” came to mind:

Faculty with experience and expertise in my field of interest
An interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning
State-of-the-art facilities
A lively and diverse student body
The graduate program at SFU Surrey exceeded my expectations.

My research interests reside in the Interactive Arts aspect of the program. Coming from a background in art history, photography and Information Technology, I sought an environment that would enable me to apply my collective knowledge towards innovative and stimulating research. I’ve been able to do so here. I’ve had the privilege of learning from people who are able to give me perspectives from industry and academe. My fellow graduate students make up the other part of a compelling and rewarding experience. They come from many fields of study: business, education, computer science, fine arts, performing arts, design….the list goes on. The opportunity to collaborate with my peers to further my research interests and theirs makes SFU Surrey an exciting place to be.

We hope you join us.”

“What captivated me about SFU Surrey was the progressive atmosphere – the motivated professors, the online material delivery, the proximity/accessibility to high tech equipment, and the small class size. It’s a place where one is only limited by their personal motivation.”

Masters Admission and Application

Admission Criteria

Application Process

The next admission intake will open in late September. The deadline for completed applications for domestic and international applicants is January 15, 2005.

Students are strongly encouraged to apply early.
 

The graduate program in Computing Arts and Design Sciences is closely linked with the research faculty and labs located at SFU Surrey. The program is subject to space availability and limited to those candidates whose research and study interests our faculty members are able to support.

Admission Criteria

Minimum Standard Entrance Requirements for the MASc Program:
1. An undergraduate degree in a field related to the proposed program of study. For example:

For Information Technology – BSc Computer Science; BASc Engineering (Electrical Communications, Computer Engineering).

For Interactive Arts – BFA in Art, Design or Performing Arts; Bachelor of Design; BA in Communications, Art, Art History, Architecture, Linguistics, Psychology, Philosophy; BSc Computer Science. The MASc in Interactive Arts would be most appropriate for those individuals who have shown an interest in multimedia.

Or

An undergraduate degree in another related discipline. Applicants under this category are required to make the case for (1) the relationship between the discipline in which they hold their previous degree and this program, and (2) how they would benefit from this program.

2. A minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better at a Canadian university, or equivalent, for the undergraduate degree.

English language proficiency requirement:
Demonstrated proficiency in the English language through one of the following means:

A previous undergraduate or graduate degree completed at a university where English is the applicant’s primary language of instruction

A minimum score of 570 on the paper-based TOEFL test with a minimum TWE score of 5

A minimum score of 230 on the computer-based TOEFL test with a minimum TWE score of 5

The Graduate Admissions Committee may ask you for a major research paper written in English from your recent, prior university work.

TOEFL scores as required need to be sent directly to us by Educational Testing Service. If you have already taken these tests, you may send photocopies with your application form to speed its processing, but original scores are still required.

Portfolio/Interview:
Candidates who are being considered for admission may be required to submit a portfolio of their work and/or be required to attend a personal or telephone interview during the latter stages of the admissions process.

——————————————————————————–

Application Procedure

Applications cannot be considered complete until all the required documents and the application fee has been received. See the application checklist for more information.

Application Form:
Three (3) copies of the application form, along with the application fee (CDN$55.00). Please send a cheque or money order in Canadian funds made payable to Simon Fraser University.

Transcripts:
Official transcripts from previous institutions mailed directly to School of Interactive Arts and Technology Graduate Admissions (see address below) by the issuing university. If transcripts are in a language other than English, please submit official English translation along with the original transcript documents.

References:
All applicants to the MASc program must provide two reference forms or letters of reference. These are to be written by individuals who can report fairly on your academic ability and qualifications and sent directly to Graduate Admissions. The accompanying Referee Form (pdf, 59k) may be used instead of or in conjunction with letters of reference.

Letter of Intent:
This is a statement of your research interests and scholarly goals. There should be an identified fit between this and the research faculty and programs offered by School of Interactive Arts and Technology at SFU Surrey. Give us some initial ideas on thesis or project work and perhaps some occupational aspirations you have following graduate work. Remember that ours is an interdisciplinary program. Your intended study described in the Letter of Intent should show clearly the compatible, interdisciplinary nature of your intended graduate research with us. It is useful to look over our Internet information to identify faculty who might support your plans. Further, look over the website information on our laboratory facilities, which might play importantly in the completion of your thesis or dissertation research. A keystone of our work is technology as new forms of communications, education, business and as vehicles for artistic expression. Describe in some detail (at least several paragraphs) how your interests fit and would be enhanced by our faculty and lab resources.

Curriculum Vitae:
This details the professional work experience you have experienced in the past 5 to 8 years that is relevant to your proposed field of study. We are particularly interested in your research experience generally and particularly with computational/digital media, and computation-dependent fields such as art, educational technology, telecommunications, engineering, computer science and on-line commerce. You may organize your C.V. according to your preferences, but it should be clear, orderly and detailed. We encourage you to use the accompanying C.V. form (75 KB, PDF).

English Language Proficiency requirement:
Demonstrated proficiency in the English language through one of the following means:

A previous undergraduate or graduate degree completed at a university where English is the applicant’s primary language of instruction

A minimum score of 570 on the paper-based TOEFL test with a minimum TWE score of 5

A minimum score of 230 on the computer-based TOEFL test with a minimum TWE score of 5

The Graduate Admissions Committee may ask you for a major research paper written in English from your recent, prior university work.
