After winning a high school robotics competition, Bo Chiasson knew that his future would involve technology – he just wasn’t sure what, or where. Now in his final year in the Instrumentation and Engineering Technology Program at Saskatchewan Polytechnic, Bo says that the hands-on experience of multiple work terms have helped hone his skills.
“When I started the program, I wasn’t sure what I was getting into. Having work terms means that I’m not going into the industry or career path blind – I’ve built up hands-on experiences.”
During his work terms, Bo has worked alongside journeymen and other experts at the Mosaic Company, one of the world’s leading producer of concentrated phosphate and potash crop. In his role, he applied the skills learned in his classes – including instrument calibration and flow-control measurement – to production facilities near his Moose Jaw home.
