School of Information and Communications Technology
We live in a wired world, with a wealth of career options for those who embrace technology. Today’s digital economy needs people like you—creative minds, problem-solvers, quick thinkers, technology buffs. Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s 16 Information and Communications Technology programs can train you for a variety of positions, including computer engineering technologist, computer network technician, web developer, library technician, video producer and graphic designer.
Design your program. Earn a certificate in New Media Communications, then enhance your marketability – and earn a diploma – by choosing any two of three advanced certificates: Media Production, Dynamic Web Development or Digital Graphic Design.
Learn by doing. Saskatchewan Polytechnic lets you apply what you’ve learned in the classroom to the work world. Business Information Systems students have a six-month paid co-operative education work term between Semesters 2 and 3. And in the three-year Computer Engineering Technology diploma program, students put their skills to the test over three four-month paid co-op work terms.
On board with industry. Several Information and Communications Technology programs are accredited nationally by key industry associations, boosting your employability throughout Canada. In fact, Saskatchewan Polytechnic is home to the Cisco Regional Academy for Saskatchewan, a real plus if you’re enrolling in our Computer Networking Technician program. If you’re heading into our Graphic Communications program, you can apply for a Canadian Printing Industries Association scholarship.
Ladder to a degree. Saskatchewan Polytechnic has transfer agreements with several Canadian universities. Complete your diploma in Business Information Systems, Computer Engineering Technology, or Library and Information Technology, and apply to transfer into a degree program.
