Skills for the future
Strategic plan 2020 - 2025
We equip students with essential skills for career success.
Technology is transforming the world of work — it's no longer a solution you outsource, it's part of every business and every business culture. Without people to implement, problem solve and ask, "what's next?", technology alone isn't a solution.
Our goal for the next five years — and beyond — is to ensure SAIT students have the digital literacy, personal agility and entrepreneurial spirit to succeed in a future driven by people, powered by technology.
The future starts now
