SAIT to open culinary campus downtown

March 2, 2012

SAIT Polytechnic is building a satellite campus in downtown Calgary that will serve as a living classroom for students in the Baking and Pastry Arts and Professional Cooking programs. Scheduled to open this fall, the 10,000-square-foot campus will allow SAIT to enrol more students in these 2 wait-listed programs, 100% of whose graduates find work in their fields, SAIT data show. Students will get the chance to work directly with a customer base vital to the industry -- downtown clientele -- as they will be able to sell their products in a small market attached to the campus' kitchens. The downtown culinary campus will also offer continuing education classes and corporate team building exercises. SAIT News Release
