Dean's Message

So you’re thinking about a career in information and communications technology. Maybe you see yourself designing web pages, supporting computer networks, working in a library or developing handy mobile apps—or the next big thing. Whatever your vision, I can assure you that all organizations that keep pace with electronic communications require creative innovative thinkers and problem-solvers.

At Saskatchewan Polytechnic, we’ll equip you with the knowledge and training you’ll need to do the job. Our programs are designed with input from industry leaders to ensure that they’ll give you a real edge in the marketplace. You’ll sharpen your skills before you graduate, sometimes through paid co-operative work terms and applied research projects.

It’s a hands-on approach to your education and to your future. I wish you a fulfilling journey!
