To be a global leader in applied education.


We prepare students for successful 
careers and lives.

SAIT’S 2020-2025 STRATEGIC PLAN is the first of the institution’s second century. Launching September 2020, the plan, scrutinized against current circumstances, is right for our evolving world. This page offers an early look at the plan’s themes, designed to prepare students for successful careers and lives.

Early flagships of the plan include the opening of new Centre for Continuing Education and Professional Studies and in downtown Calgary, a new School for Advanced Digital Technology. All students in all programs — career launchers and career changers, those upskilling and those reskilling — will be equipped to thrive in a digital economy.

Our partnership with industry, the expertise of our instructors and our adaptable model of education have been part of our competitive advantage for more than 100 years. In the last six months, our world has changed dramatically — and now more than ever, we are ready to lead the change needed to support our city, students and partners.



SAIT is changing and proud to be leading change — we didn’t get where we are by staying the same.

We’re embarking on a new course for the future — one that builds on our 100+ year history to reimagine the
workforce of tomorrow.

A workforce made by SAIT is armed with the mindset to lead and with the skills — technical and human — to create, to evolve, to make a difference.

Our course for the future embeds digital and leadership literacy across all programming, includes continuous and flexible learning, offers industry experience and connections, and develops hit-the-ground ready, future-proofed graduates.

Our roots are in Calgary, our ambition is global: to bring more of the world to SAIT and more of SAIT to the world — to be synonymous with people and practices that make things happen, that have real and lasting impact.



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.



We enable lifetime career success by providing relevant, customized education

As the needs of the economy, our students and our network evolve, the health of any career is becoming increasingly dependent on the continuous renewal of skills. Whether the goal is career advancement, a new or different career, or a career that makes a difference, having work-ready skills can change lives. Our goal for the next five years — and beyond — is to deliver a world-class student experience to a growing network of learners that reinforces SAIT’s connection between education and career the first time, every time.



We enhance the global competitiveness of our students and region

Today’s global economy demands individuals and industry compete with others from around the world. Global partnerships expand our reach and reputation, while a global campus provides all students with opportunities to develop the cross-cultural awareness they need to be successful. International enrolment brings talent, ideas and substantial economic, academic and social value to SAIT and our community. Our goal for the next five years — and beyond — is to enhance global perspectives at SAIT, and about SAIT, through experiences, relationships and recognition.



We blur the lines between industry and SAIT to strengthen the economy

Relationships with business and industry are core to SAIT. Our instructors are industry experts. Our programming evolves through an industry lens. We work with organizations around the world to deliver corporate training solutions and we work with industry partners to create commercial solutions through applied research. The speed of change affecting the world of work is massive — and our shared ability to respond is essential. Our goal for the next five years — and beyond — is to navigate change collaboratively. Together, we will develop the bench strength required to build our economy and ensure SAIT graduates are not only ready to succeed in the jobs of tomorrow but to create them.
