At BCIT, students learn theory and put it into practice all in one process. We work with industry to ensure that our training remains on the cutting edge of current practices, and engage our students in the classroom, in the lab, and in the field, building a broad and relevant spectrum of skills. When our students graduate, they’re ready to jump in and contribute—right from day one.
Our applied research activities help to bring new products to the marketplace and address industry-specific problems. Together with our graduates’ contributions, our research helps drive our economy forward.
