Saskatchewan Polytechnic offers research-intensive programming aimed at arming graduates with marketable job skills. It has four urban campuses—in Moose Jaw, Prince Albert, Regina and Saskatoon—as well as a distance education program. Based on Saskatchewan’s economic and community needs, it focuses its applied research efforts on urban development, the environment and natural resources, health education and information technology.
Saskatchewan Polytechnic is a member of Polytechnics Canada. A polytechnic is a skills-intensive, technology-based institute. It typically has close industry ties, emphasizes applied research and innovation, and offers four-year bachelor’s degrees. For example, through a partnership with the International Minerals Innovation Institute, Saskatchewan Polytechnic helped create the new Centre for Minerals Innovation (CMI). The CMI will provide training in the mining and minerals industry.
The polytechnic has a dedicated Aboriginal Student Achievement Plan (ASAP). Through ASAP, for instance, Aboriginal students can meet with Aboriginal advisers and elders, relax and study in Aboriginal Activity Centres, and acclimatize to being a student again in a summer transition program.
