The Directed Study course aims to provide students the opportunity to undertake supervised elements of study that are not offered elsewhere across the Institute, UBC, SFU or another post-secondary institute. While students are expected to select courses whenever possible from the available structured academic offerings, students may pursue through directed study a complementary course that has a supportive focus to the curriculum within the Building Science Graduate Program. The directed study course is structured to allow pursuit of a well-formulated and synthesised study plan. The course may be completed individually or with more than one student. The directed study course is separate from the Research Thesis (BSCI 9850) or Research Project (BSCI 9750) and should not constitute a part of the final thesis or project submission. The student must submit a Directed Studies Approval Form (See Graduate Student Handbook). The Directed Studies Approval Form outlines the statement of intent, objectives, milestones and schedule and includes a supporting bibliography. The form is to be signed by the student’s Supervisor and Program Director prior to the student's eligibility to register for this elective. The student works under the direction of their Supervisor or other BCIT faculty approved by the Supervisor. Student and Supervisor shall meet as required.
With completion of the Directed Studies Approval Form and the Supervisor's and Building Science Graduate Program Director’s Approval.
