Saskatchewan Applied Science Technologists and Technicians have signed a memorandum of agreement with Sask Polytechnic.
The agreement allows continued support and promotes careers in technology.
The two organizations will work together to make sure curriculum addresses the needs of the industry and give public presentations on what members are doing following graduation.
The partnership develops and promotes careers in applied science and engineering technology fields and creates a pathway for student to earn a recognized professional designation in their fields.

We value our relationship with SASTT, the partnership offers exceptional opportunities for our students and quality assurance our programs meet and exceed industry standards.
