The British Columbia Institute of Technology is evolving its established computer systems degree program into a Bachelor of Science in Applied Computer Science (BScACS) program. BCIT states that this modification will transform the degree from a Bachelor of Technology into a universally recognized BSc, allowing for students to leverage their degrees more easily should they wish to pursue graduate studies.
The new BScACS places an increased emphasis on mathematics and advanced computing courses. It also prioritises sustainability as one of its core goals, encouraging students to incorporate environmental, economic, and societal considerations into their work. The program is set to open in the Fall for applications.
