The IT Squad is a well-rounded and efficient team of FIC students who are almost ready to transfer to SFU and FIC Alumni from different majors, connected with a single idea: to provide technical help all around FIC. From instructors to staff and students, IT Squad members are always there to calmly problem solve, assist with technical issues, and escalate problems to FIC support. By working together as a team, IT Squad helps to identify tools and resources that can help support the FIC community, then turns these ideas into reality!
I chose to study in Canada because of the highly rated education system and the multicultural environment, which I’ve heard about a lot. I felt like I needed a smooth passage into SFU, so I found FIC which provided a pathway that allowed me to get used to the Canadian education system and to how things are at SFU.
