The Bachelor of Technology in Computer Systems (CST B.Tech) is an applied career-enhancement degree designed to increase the depth of knowledge and practical skills of computer system technologists, and to assist them in widening their career opportunities or advancing in their career paths. Graduates are awarded a credential that is highly valued by the industry.
The CST B.Tech full-time program is also a two-year degree completion program for students who have graduated from a two-year diploma program in computing such as the BCIT Computer Systems Technology (CST) or Computer Information Technology (CIT) program. Students who have completed other computing diploma or degree programs in an accredited college or university, whether locally or internationally, can usually be admitted into the program with only a few bridging courses. Mature students with other academic backgrounds may also be admitted into the program by taking a select set of computing courses as preparatory courses.
The specialty areas for the September 2014 Intake are:
The Games Development Option is designed to equip students with critical skills in multi-disciplinary areas required in the industry. Students will learn advanced programming techniques, game design (including graphics and audio), higher level mathematics (3D graphics, calculus, analytical geometry, linear algebra), physics and artificial intelligence concepts. This option is suitable for students interested in combining creativity and advanced programming to develop games. It is also a good fit for IT professionals wanting to change or advance their career.

There are two sets of course components, followed by a practicum, also known as the Major Project(s).
1.Technical courses in Computer Systems
2.A wide variety of General Education courses
In the Major Project(s), students apply their specialty knowledge in a real-life project, or complete an applied-research project, under the supervision of a committee. Our full-time format offers students mentoring, and practical software development experience. Courses are taught during the day, but evening courses or Web-based courses may be included. Delivery is cohort-based offering opportunities for ongoing interaction and collaboration.
