The Technology Entry (TE) program is for individuals who want solid academic preparation before entering a BCIT Technology program. It is appropriate for individuals who need to improve their skills in core areas such as communication, mathematics, chemistry and physics in order to meet program prerequisites. It is also suitable for those who need B.C. educational equivalents to supplement credentials earned in other school systems.
The TE program is a 15-week, full-time day school program that offers a broad introduction to postsecondary education in a focused but welcoming atmosphere. An introductory course in computer applications, a learning skills seminar, and an overview of technology options and related careers round out the traditional academic subjects.
Technology Entry is a great opportunity for students to strengthen their skills and explore BCIT program options at the same time.

Provisional acceptance is based on marks obtained in TE and these marks take precedence over previous course marks where applicable. Some programs have prerequisite requirements not offered by the TE program, such as biology courses. Please check the BCIT website for individual program prerequisites and entrance requirements.
