The British Columbia Institute of Technology and Selkirk College have signed an MOU that will allow for collaboration between the 2 institutions and will help students with hands-on application of knowledge and skills. The MOU will help BCIT and Selkirk “achieve goals in a fiscally-responsible manner by identifying the strengths of current research and development activities,” and provide local education and training opportunities for students. Neil Coburn, Selkirk College’s VP of Education and Students, states, “each institution has recognized areas where the other has strengths and expertise the partnership can draw on to create relevant and innovative programs and services.” The MOU currently has broadly defined areas of interest, and further development will occur in the future as needs are determined.
