School of Mining, Energy and Manufacturing

You’re analytical with an eye for detail, 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 24 programs train students in everything from engineering technology, welding and industrial mechanics to electronics, ironworking and underground mining.

Cool tools. Hands-on learning starts with modern equipment and first-rate shop facilities. Students in Engineering Design and Drafting Technology use cutting-edge software to create, animate and print in 3D. If you’re in Geomatics and Surveying Engineering Technology, you’ll be trained to use electronic survey instruments and satellite receivers.  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. Most of the school’s engineering technology programs feature paid co-operative education work terms. You’ll not only start building a professional résumé, 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. The Canadian Technology Accreditation Board accredits many of our programs, giving graduates the freedom 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 the Saskatchewan Applied Science Technologists and Technicians (SASTT).  And our Power Engineering and Electronics Technician programs will help prepare you to write industry certification exams.

Ladder-up. Our school’s engineering technology programs allow graduates to transfer their credits to degree programs at universities in Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador.

Thinking about apprenticeship? Graduates of several of our Mining, Energy and Manufacturing programs may be eligible to apply trade time and academic credit towards an apprenticeship program.
