Chinese polytechnic looks to spur aviation, automotive innovation with BCIT curriculum

October 31, 2016

BCIT has officially celebrated the opening of a China-based polytechnic school that will provide BCIT-developed aviation and automotive curriculum. Located in Chongqing, the Banan campus of the Three Gorges Polytechnic University offers a curriculum that is equivalent to what students would encounter at one of BCIT’s British Columbia campuses. BCIT adds, however, that the curriculum has also been tailored to meet the needs of the growing aviation and automotive industries in China. “BCIT is at the forefront of education and innovation, not only here in BC, but nationally and internationally,” said BCIT President Kathy Kinloch. “Through our partnership with Three Gorges Polytechnic University, BCIT’s unique applied education model will be preparing students for success in China and around the world.” BCIT
