Biographical history

An Advisory Council, made up of industry executives, recruited E. Cecil Roper from the Faculty of Commerce at UBC as the first Principal of BCIT. Roper, trained as a mining engineer, had earned an MBA after 20 years in the mining industry. Well connected to the world of B.C. industry, and equally well connected at UBC, Roper was able to attract faculty and staff from both arenas to work and volunteer for BCIT in its earliest days.
