University Overview

Red Deer Polytechnic is located in Red Deer, Alberta, halfway between the major centres of Calgary and Edmonton.  

Since 1964, when our story began as Red Deer College, our post-secondary institution has proudly served our students and communities.   

As of July 2021, our institution name is now Red Deer Polytechnic. In 2018, our post-secondary institution received approval to become a degree-granting institution.  Now as a polytechnic institution in central Alberta, we will continue to offer the same breadth of credentials and mix of programs in a variety of subject areas that we currently offer. This means we will continue to offer apprenticeships, certificates, degrees, micro-credentials and degrees.   

We welcome you to study with us. We also welcome you to join us as a vibrant gathering place in our community. With two campuses and impressive facilities, Red Deer Polytechnic is an ideal place to learn, work, conduct research and enjoy events
