Faculty of Applied and Technical Studies

A word from the associate dean

At UFV Trades & Technology Centre, we are very proud to offer programs and courses geared towards careers with opportunities.

British Columbia is going through an unprecedented growth cycle and skilled trades workers have never been in such high demand. Our programs are designed to help you develop high levels of skill, while also providing you with essential knowledge so that you can succeed in the workplace.

To serve our students in Applied and Technical Studies programs and their potential employers, we have designed our programs to provide simulated workplace experience in our well-equipped labs and shops. This means that theoretical knowledge taught in classroom sessions is reinforced with extended hands-on practice to allow you to hone your skills.

Applied and Technical Studies programs at UFV are offered as Foundation programs and Apprenticeship programs. If you have no experience, a foundation program can bring you from any level to a skilled and valuable tradesworker. Apprenticeship training is available to those who are already working in some of the trades.

Let us help you develop your skills with a high quality education.
