Mentees turned mentors: BCIT alumni Dom Kwong and Yasamin Alami help guide students
BCIT alumni Dom Kwong and Yasamin Alami may have graduated from two different programs, but they have one thing in common: they are mentors to current BCIT students. As students and young professionals, they both benefitted from the guidance of a mentor with experience in industry. Now, they're giving back by passing on their knowledge to the next generation.

Dom and Yasamin became mentors with the BCIT Student Association (BCITSA) Mentorship Program, which offers three mentorship streams: Career, Entrepreneurial and International. Even though they are giving back, they both feel they are gaining from the experience as well. Read more.

Are you interested in becoming a mentor? The BCITSA Mentorship Program is accepting submissions for the September term start until July 5, 2018. Intake interviews (via phone or virtually) must be completed by July 20). Learn more .

Did you miss Nigel's presentation at the AGM? We've rounded up all the highlights, including the Annual Report and photos. Read more .

New Grad Mariana Simoes Trades Beaches for BCIT
Would you give up the postcard-perfect beaches of Brazil for the fresh start a BCIT education can give you? Recent Business Management grad Mariana Simoes did. She just celebrated her grad at Convocation and is looking forward to building a new life in Vancouver.
From Refugee to Award-winning Civil Engineering Grad
As a child in Iran, Moshtagh Mohammadi faced unimaginable persecution because of his family's faith. So he, his brother and father fled the country for a better life in Canada. Now, this new BCIT grad is thriving, winning awards and ready to take on the engineering world.
