Colleges and Universities in Alberta

From winter sports to summer festivals, Alberta offers year-round fun. The western Canadian province boasts wide-open spaces and prairie landscapes, but also modern cities and small towns. The University of Alberta, the province's oldest and largest university, is known for its contributions to the Canadian Circumpolar Institute (which does research in the Arctic and Antarctic areas) and the Bovine Genomics Program, and also offers a world-renowned printmaking program. The province also boasts other universities in areas like Calgary and Lethbridge, and has opportunities for students to gain technical training in areas like graphic design, oil and gas administration, and more. You can also attend Bible colleges, art and design schools, regional colleges and more.

Careers after college: Job prospects in Alberta

Because it is the home of the province's largest university, it's no wonder that Edmonton has a strong student workforce. Most of the regional jobs that are experiencing growth require some education, but can provide opportunities for those who want to stay in the area after graduating. Occupations and hourly average wages in Edmonton include:

  1. Biologists and related scientists: $32.48
  2. Graphic designers and illustrators: $20.65
  3. Ministers of religion: CAN $21.89
  4. Natural and applied science researchers: CAN $29.42
  5. Petroleum engineers: CAN $45.14
  6. Printing press operators (non-Edmonton areas): CAN $20.71
  7. Printing supervisors and related operations: CAN $23.27

It goes to show that a little education can lead to a job with a healthy salary and good growth potential, and can help to make life in Alberta enjoyable for those with the right training.
