Whether you're already on a career path or just beginning a new journey, SAIT can help you on your way with a variety of credential options including diplomas, degrees, applied degrees and certificates.


Applied Degree

SAIT offers three full-time applied degree programs, which involve two years of study through classes, lab work and directed studies that build on the completion of a recognized two-year diploma. Students must have their diploma before they can be admitted to an applied degree program.

They then have seven years to finish their applied degree, starting from the day they begin the first course in that program.


Bachelor Degree

SAIT has bachelor degree programs such as business, construction and hospitality and tourism.

Bachelor degrees are generally four-year programs, but students have up to 10 years to complete their courses.



At SAIT, there are 43 full-time diploma programs that cover a broad range of areas, from aircraft maintenance to travel and tourism.

Most diploma programs are completed in two years, though students can take up to seven years to complete the requirements.



SAIT has a number of certificate programs in areas like the sciences, health and trades.

These programs provide the essential skills to start a career, but are shorter in length than SAIT's diploma programs - usually a year or less. However, students have up to five years to complete their program.


Post-Diploma Certificate

SAIT offers three full-time post-diploma certificates. These programs build on skills developed through a diploma or degree program and combine classroom instruction with a workplace practicum. They are often completed in a year or less.


Certificate of Achievement

Non-credit courses in continuing education - covering areas such as photography, library operations and financial services - are offered by SAIT. These programs include a formal evaluation and give credentials for completing the course.


Certificate of Completion

SAIT offers a number of non-credit continuing education courses in a range of areas, including computer systems, business and trades, that recognize program completion and a formal evaluation.
