What is a Polytechnic?
As one of only two polytechnics in the province, NAIT holds a key place in Alberta’s post-secondary landscape. In this video, NAIT's president, Dr. Glenn Feltham, explains how a polytechnic is different than a college or university.
Being a polytechnic means
- we deliver technology based education across our programs
- our education is experiential and hands-on
- we work in partnership with industry
- our applied research solves real problems
What really makes our polytechnic different? The people.
