What is a Polytechnic?

A polytechnic is an innovative and entrepreneurial post-secondary institution, distinct from universities and colleges in that it offers a skills-focused approach to learning.

From apprenticeships to baccalaureate degrees, polytechnics offer a range of credentials in diverse program areas focused on experience-oriented training. Multi-disciplined and industry responsive, polytechnic programs provide students with the required knowledge and skills for a rewarding career.

Leaders in applied research and innovation, polytechnics work closely with industry, regional and local organizations and community partners providing access to SAIT's leading-edge knowledge, skills and resources. Canada's polytechnics also offer diverse industry training products to corporations across the country and around the world.

SAIT is a member of Polytechnics Canada, a national alliance of the leading research-intensive, publicly funded colleges and institutes of technology dedicated to helping colleges and industry create high-quality jobs for the future.
