BCIT Credentials :: Graduate Degrees & Certificates
The master’s degree has become a major source of innovation in higher education as the primary credential for people who are improving and updating their professional skills. Responding to this demand for higher levels of applied education, BCIT now offers the following types of master's degrees:
- Master of Applied Science
- Master of Engineering
BCIT master's degrees resemble traditional models in their quality and rigour; however, a distinct BCIT flavour is embedded into the degree structure. Our master's programs are comprised of a combination of coursework and applied research. Coursework includes both advanced studies in the particular area of study and study of professional practices, such as intellectual property, product commercialization, and project management. The applied research component consists of two research courses and an applied research thesis or project.
Graduate certificates are programs at the master's level and usually require a bachelor's degree for entry. These programs provide students with rigorous learning experiences that blend theoretical knowledge with practical applications. Graduate certificates may be stand-alone programs, or they may ladder into master's degrees at recognized post-secondary institutions worldwide.
