Building the Future

Considering a career in Civil Engineering? BCIT's 4-year full-time Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering contains an optional exit after year two where you can earn a Diploma in Civil Engineering Technology. These credentials will provide you with the skills to practise in this popular field as either a civil technologist or as a civil engineer, and also allow you to get on the path to further studies.

Civil technology part-time studies programs and courses

BCIT's Civil Technology Part-time Studies (PTS) programs and courses provide continuing education and professional development opportunities for individuals in various civil technology fields. Courses are offered during weekday evenings and are held in classrooms or labs at BCIT's Burnaby Campus. In addition, there are a limited number of paper-based Distance Education (DE) courses available.

You can take just one or two PTS courses or complete a Part-time Associate Certificate or the Part-time Certificate. Please note that PTS courses do not lead to a Diploma or Degree nor confer advanced placement in the full-time Civil Engineering program. If you already have a Civil Engineering degree or diploma, download our information sheet Resources for Internationally-trained Professionals [PDF, 70 KB].

For single courses, perform a search for courses in the subjects that interest you by entering keywords in the subject area and selecting "course" or download the Part-time Studies flyer. DE courses may be found by entering "TSYH" (without quotes) in the "find part-time courses" search field.
