Biotechnology Student Association (BIOT)

Established as a joint program between BCIT and UBC’s Department of Microbiology and Immunology, the Biotechnology program offers the best of both institutions. Through the 5 years of the UBC-BCIT Biotechnology program (3 years at UBC and 2 at BCIT), you’ll get two certifications: a B.Sc. Honours in Biotechnology and a Diploma of Technology in Biotechnology. Additionally, you’ll get 16 months of paid Co-op work experience and Honours standing, which means you may be eligible to bypass a Masters program and go straight into a PhD after graduation.

Student Biotechnology Network (SBN)

The SBN is a student-driven and led, not-for-profit organization that provides students an autonomous forum to discuss and explore interests in biotechnology and the life sciences. Through interactive lectures, career fairs, networking events, and unique mentorship opportunities, SBN builds bridges between studens and the local biotech sector to help prepare industry-ready graduates. Since its inception in 2001, the SBN has grown to be the largest network of its kind in Western Canada.
