What is IATSU? We are the student body of the School of Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University. Beyond that, IATSU is a group of students that are passionate about improving not only their department, but the community within it.

If you are taking a course within SIAT, you are automatically part of IATSU! We (the IATSU Executive Committee) are an elected group dedicated to providing opportunities and events for SIAT students to grow, engage with one another, and get the most out of their academic careers. We organize amazing events like the annual SIAT Frosh, the FCAT Formal and so much more! The SIAT community is our top priority and we strive to connect with you to make your university experience that much more fun!


IATSU Executive Committee


President - Rishabh Johri

Hello fellow Designers! My name is Rishabh and I’m a Fourth year SIAT Student concentrating in Design. I am the President for IATSU for the year 2022-23 and I am here to connect our SIAT student community with the rest of SFU through SFSS and professors. I also am enrolled in the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Certificate offered by Beedie School, so would love to talk about anything new and exciting. I love to talk about sports , especially premier league and would be interested in Photo Walks and trying out new restaurants . I am from India and have been living in Vancouver for almost 5 years now and which is why I ended up trying so many new things that I am glad for. So if you ever want to chat or discuss new things reach out to me at @rishabh_johri on Instagram or MistakenMe#1304 on Discord. Cheers!


Vice President - Amena Salman

Hey y’all, I'm Amena (pronounced Am-na, the ‘e’ is just bougie). I am a [redacted]-year SIAT student interested in service and experience design, as well as this year’s Vice President. As VP, I not only help the president and the rest of IATSU but also meet with the SIAT faculty and as a student representative ! My goal for this year is to make sure that student opinions are being heard and help rebuild the in person community. A little bit about me: I love reading, I like to go on walks...so I can play Pokemon Go, and I will sell my soul to Big Time Rush.

I would love to get to know you more so please say hi if you see me irl, or on insta @a.salmander or on discord namna#9518 :^)
