Airport Operations


The 16-month Diploma program in Airport Operations at British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), supported and approved by the aviation industry, provides students with a comprehensive, interdisciplinary program of study. Course work includes lectures, demonstrations, and applied training. Students will be assigned industry-based activities that will be completed at local and/or regional and national airports. To maintain a current, high-calibre standard, this program --which is the only one of its type in Western Canada-- has an industry Advisory Committee made up of airport and airline managers, airport field staff from Canada's local regional and national airports, and Transport Canada representatives.
