Who We Are

What is polytechnic education?
Polytechnic — “many arts and skills.”

A polytechnic is an innovative and entrepreneurial post-secondary institution, distinct from universities and colleges in that it offers a skill-focused approach to learning.

From apprenticeships to baccalaureate degrees, full-time to part-time study, polytechnic institutions offer a range of credentials in diverse program areas focused on experience-oriented training. Multidisciplinary and responsive to industry, polytechnic programs provide students with the required knowledge and skills for a rewarding career.

Leaders in applied research and innovation, polytechnics work closely with industry, regional and local organizations and community partners, providing access to leading-edge knowledge, skills and resources.

Canada’s polytechnics also offer diverse industry training products to corporations across the country and around the world.

SAIT is a member of Polytechnics Canada, a national alliance of leading research-intensive, publicly-funded colleges and institutes of technology dedicated to propelling business innovation and creating jobs for tomorrow.
