About the SSSS

Our mission is to represent students in the Software Systems Program at SFU.

We help students by addressing Issues and Concerns between the students and faculty, building Community in and around our society, and sharing Resources provided by students and external organizations.

Our voice has inflenced and improved our Education. Our reach extends to over 700 students, and our annual Hackathon has over 500 registrations. We have funded conference fees, created Career Opportunities, and shared insights and materials to help students in their courses.
