Brewing & Brewery Operations — New Students

Welcome to the KPU Brewing & Brewery Operations Diploma Program!

Brewing & Brewery Operations — Student Information for Fall 2020

The health and well-being of students, staff and faculty at KPU is paramount above all other considerations. Following the direction of the Provincial Health Officer and the Ministry of Advanced Education, the Brewing department has decided to run all Fall courses online. Since the Brewing Program combines both in-class learning with hands-on application, all practical courses have been moved to the Spring 2021 term. Scheduling for this term will begin in September at which time students will be notified of protocols.

Welcome back! Sort of...

We hope you’re all safe and healthy and have been able to enjoy the spring and summer so far. We understand that you probably have a lot of questions regarding the next year, so we hope we can answer some of those here.
