As a graduate student, you need to adjust your lifestyle and need immense determination and dedication. I would like to improve your graduate student experience and wish to become the voice of graduate students at the SFU campus to refine the level of studies, fee hike issues, student engagement, & international student challenges. I would like to represent myself on behalf of all graduate students to the SFU Administration, Student Societies, Government agencies and will actively lobby both internal and external to advocate for student welfare.

You might be Curious, Why Vote for Pankaj in this role? I am Pankaj Bagga, a Research Engineer who accidentally started his journey as an entrepreneur and co-founded ventures like ‘UK Robotix Inc’ & ‘iSmart Campus’ in India, Canada and UK. With a background in Electronics and Communication and a specialization in Robotics and Computer Vision, I have taken a step ahead in my education with starting MOT MBA at Beedie School of Business.

Being an entrepreneur and having completed more than 400 Research Projects with both the government and the private sector, building relations has been an integral part of my skill set. My passion for innovation gave me an opportunity to work as the Technology lead in an ambitious project in India to build a centre for International Trade. Running my own companies has caused me to negotiate, organize and lead teams at the internal level and liaise and influence the public sector at the external level.

Inventive at heart, experienced with developing proposals for the public sector and my persuasive briefs make me an ideal candidate for the position of Director of External Relations. Given an opportunity, I will back for current and future GSS projects that will enhance and upgrade our lives as graduate students with keeping in mind the best interest of everybody.
