Centre for Arts and Technology’s Kelowna campus opened its doors over a decade ago and is located in the Landmark Centre – a campus-style business centre and technology hub that serves the greater Okanagan Valley and beyond.

Centre for Arts and Technology is not your typical community college or university. The foundation was built over 30 years ago by leaders in both media training and educational excellence. The journey has been long with many different paths being bridged together – the end result is one of Canada’s leading colleges in digital arts and technical training.

Today, we are recognized as one of the few schools that continually graduate successful students in the areas of filmmaking, animation, audio engineering, digital music production, interior design, photography, graphic & web design, and network administration, and network security.

We’ve Built A Community

But we are more than hallways and classrooms, instructors and students. Centre for Arts and Technology is a community that is built through industry contacts and advancing technologies. It is a college that nurtures students along their educational journey, providing challenges and opportunities, mentorship and motivation, all while fostering a collaborative environment where students can reach their full potential.

It has been said by many that have walked through our doors – “you can really feel the difference”. This is one of the greatest compliments we can receive and is something we are always striving to achieve. We want to feel different because we want to be different. It’s not only what makes the Centre for Arts and Technology special, but it’s also what makes the students special. Our campus is located in Kelowna and our doors are always open to visitors, please don’t be shy, book your campus tour today!
