The Innovative Manufacturing program, which opened in September at the Regina campus, is a two-year diploma program available at the Regina campus. This program was designed to provide students with a wide range of manufacturing knowledge that ranges from mechanical and CAD/CAM engineering technologies, welding and machining disciplines to project management, industrial design and quality control/quality assurance strategies. During the two-year program, students will practice skills and complete projects using industry-standard tools and equipment.

“Education and training is imperative for increased competency in modern manufacturing,” says Randy Bossie, Sandvik Coromant Canada general manager. “Sandvik Coromant is proud to help schools like Sask Polytech actively work towards closing the skills gap in Canada. The donation from Sandvik Coromant directly helps students by ensuring that the program has the necessary resources to optimally run the labs and the program. We also provide advanced training and support for faculty and alumni.”
