From agriculture to artificial intelligence, from biotechnology to biomechanics, Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s faculty experts fuel innovation through applied research. With dozens of program areas and some of the most advanced equipment in the province, Saskatchewan Polytechnic has the tools and expertise to help small- and medium-sized enterprises take their ideas from concept to market.
Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s facilities and expertise include:
Innovative Manufacturing Centre (IMC)
The IMC is an integrated, multi-campus network of facilities that incorporate established and emerging manufacturing methods and technologies to meet the current and future needs of manufacturing in Saskatchewan.
The Centre’s biomaterials testing and prototyping facility at the Regina Campus focuses on certified testing and custom prototype production. Working alongside industry, the facility acts as an incubator for testing and prototyping plant and bio-based materials.
The research, additive manufacturing and prototyping facility at Saskatoon Campus features a wide spectrum of leading-edge technology, including 3D printers, water- and laser-jet cutters and computer numerical control (CNC) machines. This manufacturing capacity provides partners with access to the capital-intensive components of the product development process.
