What differentiates BCIT from other post-secondary institutions is the career orientation of the programs, which are aligned to industry trends.

We also emphasize hands-on experience — 40 to 50 percent of your time will be spent working in labs and workshops under the guidance of our experienced instructors. Experiential learning has proven to be an effective way to learn and it provides “job-ready” skills.
