The BCIT Building Science class of 2019 will hold their Open House on Wednesday, May 8 from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The graduating students will be displaying their Term Projects in the High-Performance Building Lab (Building NW3) located just off of Canada Way east of Willingdon Avenue in Burnaby (maps below). Come and meet the graduating students, share beverages and snacks, and check out the latest student research and the Building Science program.
