First Year Achievement Award - 2018
I came to BCIT after taking a year off of school. I had worked in a lab during
that time and I really liked the environment.
I really enjoyed the Chemical and Environmental Technology program and BCIT because it was very dynamic and touched on variety of subjects. Now I work for as a Lab Technician at a pharmaceutical company.
