Different than a college or university, the British Columbia Institute of Technology offers practical, applied education with instructors who have direct, hands-on experience in their field.
Since our first class graduated in 1966, our history has reflected the evolution of British Columbia’s economy. Our institution has always been on the cutting edge of technology, and we’re proud of our contribution to shaping the province’s workforce.
For more than 50 years, we’ve been filling the needs of industry, and training future leaders and changemakers across a diverse range of sectors—and our work, like theirs, is never done.
Leading the vision for BCIT
At BCIT, our leadership team is working to drive the institution towards its aim: quality education that points graduates to meaningful, future-proof careers.
We have three major commitments as part of our Strategic Plan 2019–2022: to being a people-focused organization that delivers a future-proof applied education—and to amplify our impact through globally relevant connections.
