About SAIT

Technology is who we are — it’s what we do. Officially known as the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), we’re a community of thinkers, creators and champions leading change and reimagining the workforce of tomorrow.

Technology — it's in our name

In 1916, our doors opened in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with 11 students and a mandate to train veterans returning from the First World War. Over the years, we’ve matched community needs — as a hospital during the Spanish Flu pandemic and as a Royal Canadian Air Force Wireless Training School during the Second World War.

Fast forward to today and SAIT’s action-based learning, solution-focused research and industry partnerships are helping to shape the next generation of inventors, entrepreneurs and pioneers.

The future can’t wait. Neither can we.

SAIT is changing and proud to be leading change — we didn’t get where we are by staying the same. Our course for the future, outlined in New World. New Thinking, embeds digital literacy and leadership development across all programs. In 2020, we launched the School for Advanced Digital Technology — a hub for digital technology learning in the heart of downtown Calgary. It’s our boldest transformation to date, one that will boost the tech-talent pipeline and catalyze the digital economy.
