“SAIT was the perfect fit for my career progression. A quick background story,

my aunt and uncle are currently living in Calgary and it was our intention (my

husband and I) to reunite with them. Conveniently, as Calgary is located in Alberta

which is well-known for its oil and gas industries, choosing Calgary as our city of

destination also aligned with my career plan – to work in chemical industries.”

So, I decided to re-enter the academe after 10 years of being away and

familiarize myself with the updates in chemical technology. Way back in 2017, SAIT

is the only school that offered the program that fit my needs – basic chemistry

refresher with practical hands-on experience that will equip me for the Canadian job

market, all in just 2 years. On top of this, Chemical Laboratory Technology diploma

program also has the option of a 1-year paid job placement, an excellent opportunity

to connect with future employers while earning money on the side. Further

research only strengthened my decision of studying at SAIT. This institution is a

perfect place for mature students like me who aims to learn industry-specific skills.”

Through her academic excellence and outstanding performance, she was able to bag 4 student awards and/or grants namely the following:
