More than just the fundamentals of carpentry, plumbing and pipefitting, programs within our School of Construction offer the training needed for an expanding pool of tech-forward jobs in the industry, from civil engineering technology to construction project management.
Industries across the board increasingly rely on technology, and the construction sector is no different.
Here at SAIT, you can lay the foundation for a successful career with industry-driven programs focused on essential skills, cross-disciplinary learning opportunities, and cutting-edge technology, including drones, laser-scanning and 3D printing.
The technology I had access to at SAIT allowed me to turn my academic and industry training into building blocks I could use to create innovative tools for the avalanche and geotechnical industries. I learned so much by grasping all of the tools that SAIT had to offer.
Upcoming events and information sessions
Trades and Technology Complex
The 740,000-square-foot Trades and Technology Complex is the largest campus expansion in the nearly 100-year history of SAIT. It allows more students every year to further their passions for skill-based training, primarily in energy, construction, and manufacturing.
The School of Construction primarily resides in the Aldred Centre, the largest of the three buildings at 440,000 square feet. The building is named for John and Cheryl Aldred, generous donors who helped make the facility's construction possible.
The building features soaring ceilings, multi-purpose rooms that can expand and contract as needed, and a workspace supported by a crane. All of these elements tell the story of a hard-working building designed for action.
