As of this month Saskatchewan Polytechnic is offering 12 seats in its new Innovative Manufacturing program. Beginning September 2017 the two-year diploma program will be delivered at the Regina campus.
Saskatchewan’s manufacturing sector identified the need for multi-skilled workers. The cross-discipline design of the proposed program provides students with a breadth of knowledge and skills, ranging from mechanical and CAD/CAM engineering technologies, welding and machining disciplines to project management, industrial design and quality control/quality assurance strategies.
“Our new Innovative Manufacturing Diploma program will produce cross-disciplined graduates, with the 21 century skills needed to work in Saskatchewan’s manufacturing sector,” says Dr. Larry Rosia, president and CEO. “Working with employers, Sask Polytech is building a curriculum to meet their evolving needs.”
During the two-year program, students will practice skills and complete projects using industry-standard tools and equipment. The program also offers a wide range of skill-based and hands-on training with technologies and computer programs. As part of their studies, students will have an opportunity to participate in a two-week, industry-based work placement.
