Student Innovation Challenge

Each year, the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) ignites a spark of innovation among its students through the Student Innovation Challenge Pitch Ceremony. This event serves as a platform for students from various disciplines to showcase their creativity and expertise. This year, the stage was set for 9 entries to present in front of a distinguished panel of industry sponsors and BCIT’s School of Business and Media Dean.

The Pitch round was a culmination of months of hard work and dedication, with each finalist presenting their groundbreaking ideas. From applied research initiatives to sustainable solutions and entrepreneurial ventures, the diversity of talent displayed highlighted innovation and excellence across all its six schools.

For aspiring entrepreneurs and inventors, this event serves as an opportunity to bring their visions to life and make a tangible impact on industries and communities.

Congratulations to the winners!

The day ended with an Awards Ceremony, where students were recognized for their achievements in the categories of Applied Research, Entrepreneurship and Sustainability.
