British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT)
The British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) is a public polytechnic institute that has five campuses located in the Metro Vancouver region, with its main campus in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. The school operates as a vocational and technical school, offering apprenticeships for the skilled trades and diplomas and degrees in vocational education for skilled technicians and workers in professions such as engineering, accountancy, business administration, broadcast/media communications digital arts, nursing, computing, medicine, architecture, and law.
The institute is exploring the possibility of developing a research centre to advance the state of practice in low-emission and no-emission transportation technology. This centre would offer public demonstrations, teaching and research on fuel cell electric, battery electrics and hybrid vehicles, and potentially a hydrogen fuelling station.
