Discover SAIT and future careers
A SAIT education offers students practical experience and theoretical knowledge in a real-world context. Students benefit from hands-on learning in unique labs and classrooms, participation in applied research on campus with industry partners and, in many programs, workplace practicums that enable them to apply their learning. SAIT's close partnerships with industry, government and other post-secondaries offer students the skills and connections they need to succeed in local, national and global economies.

Career Exploration Centre
The Career Exploration Centre is a unique, learner-focused facility for youth to gain a better understanding of careers, the career exploration process and applied education — preparing them to make informed learning and career pathway choices in high school and beyond.
Through partnerships with Calgary's two school boards, SAIT has developed a program that aligns not only with careers but also with Alberta Education's Program of Studies and critical competencies. This experience is open to all schools.
