You'll learn by doing
Approximately two-thirds of our programs offer a work-integrated learning component
to gain real-world experience.
The blend of knowledge, skills and experience you’ll acquire here is a big advantage
in today’s job market. Work-integrated learning comes in many forms. Depending on

programs. Labs help you translate classroom theory into practical application. This

Machinery time is all about hands-on, real world, practical learning. Under the guidance
of experienced instructors, you learn how to assemble, service, repair, modify and
overhaul a wide range of equipment.
Work practicums are unpaid work placements where you gain real world job experience.
You learn by doing—on the job. Practicums also provide a first-hand taste of the kind
of work and work environment you can expect in your chosen field.
Outdoor field camps are a highlight of Sask Polytech’s tourism and natural resources
programs. Excellent fall and winter camp facilities at the Hannin Creek Centre on
the shores of Candle Lake provide unforgettable experiences, with outdoor learning
geared to specific program requirements.
