About this program

Instrumentation Engineering Technology - Diploma

Whether at urban power plants or remote mine sites, big machines are working 24/7. These machines are controlled by complex instruments… so complex it takes specialized technologists to look after them.

Instrumentation engineering technology is a specific skill set—you need to be comfortable with technology, good at visualizing how systems work and interested in troubleshooting solutions. It’s also a career with diverse job opportunities. Demand is especially high in heavy industry, mining, manufacturing and production.

Co-operative work terms are paid, so you'll earn while you learn. Saskatchewan Polytechnic arranges your interviews; it's up to you to shine. It's also a chance to develop important "soft skills" in job interviewing, professional attitude, interpersonal communication and more.

Many of our co-op employers require both a valid Saskatchewan Driver's License and a clean Driver's Abstract. For international students, it can take up to 12 months to obtain a Driver's license; therefore, it is to your advantage to come with a Driver's License from your home country if possible.

Admission requirements

English is the language of instruction and examination at Saskatchewan Polytechnic. If your first or primary language is not English and/or your country is not exempt, you will need to provide evidence of your English speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. These skills are required to be successful in a Saskatchewan Polytechnic program.

Saskatchewan students graduating from Fransaskois and French Immersion high school programs are not required to meet further English Language Proficiency requirements.
