New BCIT Graduate Certificate in Building Energy Modelling

BCIT is offering a new Graduate Certificate in Building Energy Modelling starting September 1, 2015.

Energy Modelling is an important area of specialization of Building Science; as such, the Graduate Certificate in Building Energy Modelling builds on the strengths and success of the Building Science Graduate Program at BCIT with a focus on the fundamental heat, air, and moisture transport principles, and their application to building systems integration. Emphasis is placed on mechanical systems design, operation, and control; and their integration with the building envelope.

Students can expect to complete the Graduate Certificate in one academic year if they fast-track by registering in up to three courses per term, or complete the credential in two to three years if they take a lesser course load.

Admissions will be opening for applications soon. To be notified, please send an email to


Program prerequisites are the same as for the Master of Applied Science in Building Engineering/Building Science. Read complete pre-requisites here.

Post-secondary: one of the following:

  • A 4-year Bachelor’s degree in an engineering field or architecture with a GPA of 2.8 out of 4.0 (70%)


  • A 4-year Bachelor’s degree in a related Science field with a GPA of 2.8 out of 4.0 (70%), preferably with an Architectural and Building Technology (ABT) diploma (Building Science option) or equivalent building science industry experience.

Math: Differential Equations and Linear Algebra at the post-secondary level
