Where thought meets action


As Canada’s only polytechnic university, Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) offers students a unique educational experience, featuring programs and courses that can’t be found anywhere else. KPU students get the benefit of hands-on experience, combined with traditional academics and courses are taught by expert faculty with an abundance of experience in their field. The university works closely with industry experts in the community and professional organizations to develop new programs and course offerings, making sure students are well prepared to enter the workforce and make a positive difference in their communities.

Many of KPU’s programs feature work experience placements, practicums, or co-operative education terms. Students in co-op develop their job search techniques as they build their résumé and cover letter, and apply for real, competitive positions. During their work terms, learners are able to sample different roles within the industry they are seeking to enter and build valuable professional networks. KPU currently offers co-op education options in select arts, business, and science and horticulture programs

As a diverse and multicultural university, KPU provides a range of opportunities for students to study abroad through exchanges and field schools, letting learners gain experience in their discipline first-hand.

For more than 30 years, Kwantlen Polytechnic University has provided students with the skills they need for the careers they want. KPU offers a range of degree, diploma, certificate, and citation programs with opportunities for hands-on experience and experiential learning.
