Brewing Info Session

Passionate about craft beer? 
Interested in a career in the brewing industry?

The growth of craft breweries around the world is creating a demand for educated, trained brewers. In Kwantlen Polytechnic University's (KPU) Brewing & Brewery Operations Diploma, students get practical, hands-on experience in our award-winning brewery and learn the science, art and business of brewing in this comprehensive, two-year program.  

Join us for our next online info session to learn more about KPU's Brewing Diploma — the only program of its kind in BC and the only institution in Canada recognized by the Master Brewers Association for a standard of excellence in brewing education — and the variety of career opportunities in the industry.

During the sessions, you'll hear from a KPU Brewing instructor and get a virtual tour of our state-of-the-art teaching brewery. The session will include an overview of the curriculum, admission requirements, portfolio submissions, instructor bios, tips on how to be successful in the program, and more. You'll also have the opportunity to ask questions of the instructor and any students or alumni who may be joining us, too.
