Karen Graham, SAIT’s Career Advancement Academic Chair, points to ongoing digital transformation within businesses and organizations and the push for Calgary to become a city where start-ups can thrive.
“With more seats available in our tech programs, we continue to position ourselves as key players for digital connectivity in the industry,” Graham says.
Cyber security programming
SAIT has also introduced a Cyber Security for Control Systems program to address the digital skills gap and cyber security concerns at the forefront of the tech industry.
With manufacturing and energy plants, telecommunication infrastructure, hospitals and other industrial systems facing the possibility of cyberattacks, this post-diploma program prepares students to respond to digital security business risks.
“The program focuses on the industrial application of cyber security,” says Graham. “We teach students how to protect important company assets, such as power grids and water supply controls.”
