The Computer Engineering Technology program is a three-year, nationally recognized, diploma offered full time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic, Moose Jaw campus. You’ll get an exceptional hands-on learning experience during five semesters of classroom study and three Co-operative Education work terms.


About this Computer Engineering Technology Degree

If you’re fascinated by what makes computers tick, both inside (hardware) and out (software), becoming a computer engineering technologist has great possibilities. Work in information technology roles, network security, embedded systems, robotics, and automated systems. The future is still unfolding, and your career could go in many directions.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic is unique in our emphasis on both hardware and software. You’ll learn how to:

  • analyze, test and design analog and digital circuits
  • design, fabricate and populate printed circuit boards
  • program personal computers and microcontrollers using various programming languages
  • design and test interfaces between computers and peripherals
  • design, install and administer networks
  • design and test various digital data transmission systems
  • install, configure and maintain workstations and servers in various operating system environments

A capstone research project gives you an opportunity to apply what you’ve learned to the development of an original design, from concept through to prototype.

The Co-op Work Term Advantage

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.
