If you’re interested in a hands-on trade, check out Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Welding program. We’ll get you started on a career that offers a lot of options, great mobility and excellent pay.
Power Engineering Technology Program
The world runs on power. Power engineering technologists are in charge of operating and maintaining the complex systems used to operate industrial boilers, pumps, air conditioning and refrigeration systems. Demand for skilled power engineers is growing, opening the door to good jobs in the oil patch, mining, manufacturing, power generation utilities and more.
Computer Engineering Technology Program
The Computer Engineering Technology program is a three-year, nationally recognized, diploma offered full time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic, Moose Jaw campus. You’ll get an exceptional hands-on learning experience during five semesters of classroom study and three Co-operative Education work terms.
Engineering Design and Drafting Technology Diploma
If you’re considering a career in construction, mining or manufacturing, you may be interested in the Engineering Design & Drafting Technology program at Sask Polytech. You’ll use industry-standard software to collaborate, design, model, draft, coordinate and document projects in many disciplines, such as construction, mining and manufacturing.
CAD/CAM Engineering Technology Diploma Program
Imagine you could redesign anything to fit a specific need—make it smaller, bigger or stronger. Now imagine if you could actually “print” a 3D prototype? As a computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) engineering technologist, you’ll help turn great ideas into practical plans.
Machinists are in high demand in western Canada—from the oil patch to power utilities, from manufacturing facilities to mines, mills and chemical plants. Offered in Saskatoon and Regina, our one-year certificate program can fast-track you into the workforce, and give you a head start on apprenticeship. You’ll learn on a variety of machine tools in our well-equipped shops including lathes, mills, drill presses, surface grinders, CNC lathes and machining centres.
