If you are looking for ways to leverage your engineering or information and communications technology degree to advance your career, consider Saskatchewan Polytechnic's new Project Management post-graduate certificate (PMPGC). The Project Management Institute (PMI) is predicting a 33% increase in project management jobs world-wide and Canada is expected to add an estimated 9,000 project management jobs every year for the next 10 years. These predictions present opportunities for those with the right training and skills.

The one-year Project Management post-graduate certificate program provides degree graduates with a strong foundation in essential project management skills. Our curriculum has been developed with input from industry stakeholders, which ensures students receive a relevant, work-focused learning experience.

You will study the fundamentals of project management, project initiation and planning, project scheduling and budgeting, directing and managing project work, procurement and contract management, alternative methodologies for project management, as well as project closing and evaluation. Several courses will help you prepare for Project Management Institute designation exams.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic gives you the opportunity to interact with industry through work-integrated learning opportunities, including course projects, and guest speakers. You will also build critical human skills through courses in leadership and professionalism, organizational behaviour and business communications.

Admission Method

First Qualified/First Admitted

The First Qualified/First Admitted (FQFA) process is used for the majority of Saskatchewan Polytechnic programs. When we determine that you meet the program's admission requirements, you will be offered admission based on the date you fully qualify for the program. The earlier you provide the appropriate documents and information that qualify you for admission to the next intake, the earlier you might begin your studies. Your application, once qualified, is always considered for the next intake. 

Applicants to programs with multiple intakes in an academic year remain in the application pool until the last intake for that academic year has begun. Programs using the FQFA process receive applications year round and maintain an application pool for each academic year. Qualified applicants who are not offered a seat must reapply for the next academic year. 

Sponsored programs or programs targeted to specific groups do not accept applications year round or maintain an application pool.

See Admission Processes for more information about this method of admission.
