KPU's Environmental Protection Technology is a two year co-op program accredited by Technology Accreditation Canada and offered at the Langley campus. Click our links to learn more about the program's approach, access our courses, view the program calendar description, or find out about fees and our numerous awards and scholarships exclusive to EPT students.

Our students carry out a variety of activities: there are extensive labs and field trips since much of our instruction use a hands-on, experiential learning approach; some of our students get to travel, enrolling for co-op work-terms abroad; and, of course, many participate in the activities of our environmental student club.

Our instructors include full-time KPU faculty members and industry professionals. The program benefits from the guidance of our advisory committee members from different sectors of the environmental industry. Feedback from our students and grads is essential, and we thank our grads who provided testimonials.
