You're analytical, have an eye for detail, and are at home in a lab ... or maybe you thrive in a creative environment, the outdoors or working with machinery.
Careers in mining, energy and manufacturing require a diversity of skills. Our school's programs train students in everything from engineering technology, welding and industrial mechanics to electronics, ironworking and underground mining.
On the cutting edge. Hands-on learning starts with modern equipment and first-rate shop facilities. Students in Engineering Design and Drafting Technology use industry-standard to design, 3D model and draft multi-discipline engineering projects. Power Engineering Technology students receive boiler firing time and training in the production of power that drives our various industries. Several of the school's programs include an applied research project so you can put theory to the test in real-world situations.
Earn while you learn. Several of the school's engineering technology programs feature paid co-operative education work terms. You'll not only start building a professional resumé, but you'll also have the chance to stand out from the crowd by developing job interviewing, interpersonal communications and leadership skills. When you return to your studies, you'll have a strong understanding of the environment you are studying.
In sync with industry. All programs in the School of Mining, Energy and Manufacturing are nationally accredited which gives graduates the opportunity to work across Canada. After two years of employment in the field, Saskatchewan Polytechnic grads from these programs are eligible to apply for professional endorsement from Technology Professionals Saskatchewan.
Ladder up. Our school's engineering technology programs allow graduates to transfer their credits to degree programs at universities in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Ontario.
Thinking about apprenticeship? Graduates of several of our Mining, Energy and Manufacturing programs may be eligible to apply trade time and academic credit toward an apprenticeship program.
