The British Columbia Institute of Technology has launched a pathways program that lets high school students explore careers in the fields of architecture, construction, and engineering (ACE). This new ACE Fields Microcredential is set to offer work-integrated learning experiences to its first cohort of students this summer.

“BCIT is excited to be spearheading this unique ACE initiative,” said BCIT Dean, School of Construction and the Environment Wayne Hand. “Access to paid, industry work placements provide young learners the insight, experience, and connections needed to make informed decisions about their career and education pathways, while giving industry partners the opportunity to attract young people to their vibrant sectors.”
