Welcome to PRISM!

We are BCIT’s Polytechnic Research Institute for Simulation and Multimedia.

As a Centre of Excellence, we develop, explore, and research all types of simulation to give students a more engaging learning experience. Using emerging technologies such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and mixed reality (MR), we are developing new ways for students to learn in the classroom, virtually, and in the field.

Our diverse and highly skilled team is passionate about creating new frontiers of learning using the latest technology. We’ve created simulations across multiple disciplines, including health, transportation, aerospace, construction, forestry, and mining. Check out our projects for some of the innovative initiatives we have worked on.
