Program Development and Change

All new programs and major curriculum changes at BCIT require development and approval prior to implementation.Please call your School Liaison to be linked with an IDC who will help you and support your project.

All resources related to program development and change (templates, guiding documents, etc.) are available on the Academic Planning and Quality Assurance website:
Your IDC will work with you to create a development report for your new program or major change.
