The Department of Civil Engineering at BCIT offers a 4-year Bachelor of Engineering degree program accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board. The flexible, integrated program also allows students to exit with a nationally recognized Diploma of Technology after 2 years of study. The primary goal of the program is to graduate highly qualified, practically-oriented civil technologists and engineers eligible for professional registration. In part, this is achieved through faculty’s excellent ties to industry. Graduates have an excellent record of employment and advancement in the diverse civil engineering industry in BC and elsewhere.

BCIT’s School of Construction and the Environment is seeking a regular, full-time Instructor who is an enthusiastic, team-oriented professional with expertise in structural engineering to strengthen our program. Having a background in other discipline(s) of civil engineering would be an asset, as all instructors in the Department contribute to delivering a program that covers almost the entire range of disciplines in civil engineering. The Instructor must have a strong commitment to teaching and interacting with students, an ability to communicate clearly and effectively, and an interest in developing and delivering quality curriculum to all levels. Additionally, the Instructor has a willingness to participate in continuous program improvement and administration, including outreach and collaborations.
