What will I learn?

If you like working with machinery, enjoy solving mechanical problems and are good with your hands, check out Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Industrial Mechanics program. You’ll get the basic knowledge and skills you need to install, repair, overhaul and maintain stationary, industrial machinery and mechanical equipment.

basic math, drafting and blueprint reading
basic welding, fabrication and installation
conveyance systems, pumps and pipe fitting
mechanical components
preventative maintenance
using tools of the trade
