BC mining industry, "As we grow we have to do so in a manner that earns trust and confidence of  British Columbians"

British Columbia Institute of Technology - BCIT

BCIT Mining and Mineral Exploration Technology Program

The Mining and Mineral Exploration Technology program focuses on geology, mining methods, exploration technology, surveying, and computer applications for mining operations and mineral explorations. Students learn hands-on science and engineering skills, and complete and complete an industry-standard report during the second year of the full-time program. BCIT also offers a variety of part-time courses.

Mining is a cornerstone industry of many communities throughout BC and Canada and it is a major contributor to our economy. Canada is recognized as a world leader in mineral exploration and mining, and our expertise is exported around the world to help discover, develop, and operate mines.

As one of the largest users of high-technology equipment and applications, the mining industry requires practitioners who have the skills necessary to keep up with these advances.  Virtually all technical jobs within mining and mineral exploration, including geology, engineering, mineral processing, environmental assessment and surveying, require post-secondary education.

If you are interested in a varied work environment, in the office, lab or field, and like solving scientific problems, this program will appeal to you.  Take the Mining and Mineral Exploration Technology program, the only program of its kind in Western Canada.
