Overview

Instrumentation Engineering Technology Diploma

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.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic offers the only accredited instrumentation engineering technology program in Saskatchewan. The three-year diploma is offered full-time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic Moose Jaw campus. 

During five academic semesters and three Co-operative Education work terms, you’ll get practical training in:

  • analytical instruments
  • codes and standards
  • computer programming
  • data communications and networks
  • digital and linear circuits
  • digital logic
  • distributed systems
  • drafting
  • electronics
  • instrument measurement
  • machine shop
  • process applications
  • project management
  • relay and instrument controls

Classroom theory is supported by extensive lab time. You’ll have access to leading-edge equipment and supportive instruction as you apply what you’ve learned in experiments, applied research and a major second-year project.

Co-operative work terms are paid, so you'll earn while you learn.

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.
