are at the doctoral level.

SIAT is located in purpose-built, state-of-the-art classrooms and
laboratories at SFU's Surrey campus. Simon Fraser University at Surrey, the
University's newest campus, is located in the greater Vancouver region of
British Columbia. The area is home to 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.
