BCIT Distinguished Awards Gala

The Distinguished Awards is the signature event for BCIT, where we celebrate outstanding leaders and high-achieving BCIT alumni. Watch the highlights of the 2019 Distinguished Awards gala below.

We invite you to celebrate with us at the 18th annual BCIT Distinguished Awards gala on October 21, 2020. More details to come.

The 2020 BCIT Distinguished Awards celebrate the richness of BCIT by recognizing the recipients of our Honorary Doctorates of Technology, BCIT Distinguished Alumni Awards, and Outstanding Student Leadership Award. The recipients are outstanding leaders, making significant contributions both locally and around the globe.

Join us at the Distinguished Awards dinner, where approximately 1,000 business and community leaders, partners, and alumni will come together with BCIT’s leadership, faculty members, and students to celebrate the remarkable success of those who embody the values of BCIT. Your attendance and support will inspire students, faculty and staff, and the wider community, and help us continue to champion our students as they become the leaders of tomorrow.
