To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.
In this second of three capstone graduation courses, and under the supervision of the course instructor, the student must complete the data collection and analysis as specified in the graduation project proposal developed in FSCT8611. The student will apply the chosen research methodology and collect the requisite data needed to answer the research questions of interest. At defined intervals, the student must present his/her progress orally to the class and in writing to the course instructor. The student must complete this phase of the project to a satisfactory level, as determined by the course instructor, program coordinator and subject matte expert (where applicable) before registering for the third and final course, FSCT8631.
This course, which is open to all BTech students in the FS, CIA and DF&C programs, will be exclusively online for the Winter 2021 term and will consists of five recorded live sessions every second Thursday (Jan 14, 28, Feb 11, 25, and Mar 11). Attendance will not be mandatory, but there will be pre-recorded materials that will be released each week with various due dates of assignments noted throughout. More details will be available in the learning hub at the start of the course. For information on Forensic programs and courses, please visit: https://www.bcit.ca/cas/forensics.
