    Saskatchewan Polytechnic Co-op Education

    Saskatchewan Polytechnic Moose Jaw Campus offers Co-operative Education as part of its education strategy. Co-operative Education integrates classroom theory with related on-the-job experience by alternating periods of academic study and paid employment. Architectural Technologies (Building Sciences and Interior Design) is a program which provides students with training for a variety of careers in the building design and construction industry. Students learn the properties and functions of construction materials, criteria and methods of building design, the preparation of construction documents using AutoCAD and Revit, and contract administration.
    Students available for their first work term, May-August, will have completed an introduction to construction and design. They are able to assist in the design of simple structural systems and components using an understanding of materials and methods, building codes, drafting standards, as well as structural concepts and calculations. For each work term (3 in total), the students are expected to work full time and can fit in a variety of positions like construction laborer, design/drafting assistant, project manager/coordinator and estimator, to name a few.

    There are many benefits of hiring a co-op student: Fill short term staffing needs for special projects or peak season relief; evaluate candidates for future permanent employment; and contribute to the important task of training our future work force. There are still students looking for their first work term placement that are available to begin work as soon as possible. If you are interested in hiring a student or would like more information on the process, please contact the Co-op Education Coordinator for Architectural Technologies:
