BCIT specializes in applied learning: a unique blend of academic learning and real-world skills.
Students learn the theory behind their field of study, then apply what they’ve learned in our labs, shops, and while working on projects with business and industry.
This means students graduate with more than just an education, they have relevant experience; they know exactly what to do and why it's done that way. Employers know that's what they can expect from BCIT graduates, and they look for it.
- Our programs are developed with input from leaders in business and industry, and are taught by committed and experienced instructors.
