Welcome to BCIT
Different than a college or university, the British Columbia Institute of Technology offers practical, applied education with instructors who have direct, hands-on experience in their field.
Inspiring a bold new chapter
The largest initiative in our 50 year history, we are transforming the BCIT campus into a dynamic new learning environment where solutions to our most urgent challenges are born, tested and readied for the world.
Fireweed, BCIT’s first branded podcast has launched
In British Columbia, fireweed is the very first plant to grow back after a forest fire. Humble and tenacious, bright and prolific, fireweed is a symbol of hope, resilience, and adaptability – things the world could all use a little more of right now. Fireweed, consists of six 20-minute episodes, which celebrates stories of people who have persevered and re-written their story in the face of disruption.
During an unparalleled period of profound adjustment in the way we work, learn, and socialize, the stories of Fireweed will provide a unique educational experience for listeners that features guests on topics including accessibility, sustainability, cybersecurity, shifting careers, advancing education, and the future of transportation.
Year in Review 2020/2021
