“I’m getting a lot of hands-on experience with different analytical methods and instruments, which was pretty much everything taught in class.”

StudentChristina Wu graduated from the Chemical and Environmental Technology program in the Process Engineering Option in 2016. Yet her current role is with Powertech Labs (BC Hydro subsidiary) as a Laboratory Technical Assistant.
“I’m doing analytical chemistry work even though I went with the process engineering option at BCIT. I can safely say that you get enough exposure to both regardless which option you go with in your 2nd year.”

Christina chose the Chemical and Environmental program because the courses looked interesting and challenging and included a lot of lab work/practical application. Learning in a lab environment provided her confidence with her interviews when looking for employment.

Christina is currently working full time and is doing a part-time degree completion program at Royal Roads University (Bachelor of Science in Environmental Practice).

“The credit transfer agreement BCIT has with several other institutions certainly made things easier!”

Congratulations Christina!
