The program is designed to help new graduates build knowledge, confidence, and competence as they become established in their new career.
Are you a recent graduate from university in engineering or science?
The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is currently looking for engineering and sciences post-secondary graduates for the Engineer-in-Training/Geoscientist-in-Training (EIT/GIT) Program.
By joining our ministry, you'll be given the chance to build on your strong educational foundation with firsthand work experience. Full-time permanent employment with us includes a comprehensive training plan and rotations around the province. As an EIT/GIT, you'll be assigned mentors who will share their lifetime of work experience and provide you with advice and direction.
You'll be hired into a permanent position and compensated as a Licensed Science Officer (LSO 1) until you become a registered professional with Engineers & Geoscientists British Columbia (EGBC). You'll spend your first 4 years working towards becoming a registered professional engineer or geoscientist.
The ministry is an accredited employer with EGBC. This allows participating EITs to become registered on the employer’s recommendation and their applications are expedited through the low-risk pathway towards professional registration.
In the last year of the program, you'll focus on learning more ministry-specific required experience and be compensated as an LSO 2. Upon completion of this last year, you'll be placed in your final position within the ministry and be fully compensated as a LSO 3 (DPE/Geoscientist classification).
