Saskatchewan Polytechnic is Saskatchewan’s primary provider of power engineering certification. We offer two levels training: the two-year Power Engineering Technology diploma program and the one-year Power Engineering Technician certificate program.


About this Degree

The world runs on power. Power engineering technologists are in charge of operating and maintaining the complex systems used to operate industrial boilers, pumps, air conditioning and refrigeration systems. Demand for skilled power engineers is growing, opening the door to good jobs in the oil patch, mining, manufacturing, power generation utilities and more.

Power Engineering Technology is a two-year diploma program offered full time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic Saskatoon campus. You’ll gain knowledge and skills in the operation of power (steam) plants and industrial processes, including:

  • air conditioning and refrigeration
  • boiler operations (high and low pressure)
  • communications
  • computer monitoring of plant operations
  • controls and instrumentation
  • environmental (pollution) management
  • equipment checks and maintenance
  • plant safety
  • pump operations
  • water treatment systems

The program combines classroom learning with hands-on labs, power labs, computer simulations and industry work experiences. Graduates are productive on the job from day one—something employers look for when hiring and promoting.
