Cliffwalk on the wild side for VCC drafting students

Posted on June 4, 2013

 

At VCC, we’re all about learning that’s hands-on. In this case, we mean hold on tight!

On June 4, students in VCC’s drafting technician programs ended their semester with a guided tour of the new Cliffwalk attraction at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park in North Vancouver. Students were given a unique opportunity to question the people who designed and engineered the popular tourist attraction, learning first-hand what it takes to build something so complex.

"VCC builds and maintains strong relationships with industry partners so that our students can experience real world learning," says Graham Huckin, department head, drafting technician programs. "Our students are always welcome for on-site tours of major construction projects in B.C."

Drafting technicians play a critical role in the construction sector. Students in VCC's drafting programs can choose from three specialty study areas: architectural, architectural/civil/structural or steel detailing.

Our graduates have gone on to work on projects like the Canada Line, Port Mann Bridge, and Vancouver Cruise Ship Terminal.

Attend our next information session to meet faculty and learn how to apply for September.
