St. Clair College is the province’s premier postsecondary institution, providing higher education for over 12,500 full time students. With campuses in Windsor and Chatham, students study in a wide variety of disciplines achieving advanced diplomas, diplomas, graduate certificates, and degrees in Health Sciences, Engineering Technologies, Skilled Trades, Business & Information Technology, Media Art & Design, Community Studies, and Social Justice and Legal Studies.
The College is renowned for its teaching excellence in the health care sector, educating the largest number of health care students in the province in Respiratory Therapy, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Pharmacy Technician, Nursing, and Paramedic, to name a few. Both campuses in Windsor and Chatham have state-of-the-art teaching labs that simulate real-world health care settings.
That same focus on excellence can also be found in the newly announced Zekelman School of Business & Information Technology. A new standard for advanced education in business and information technology has taken flight and the school has already announced new offerings in Data Analytics for Business, Esports Administration & Entrepreneurship, and its first Honours Bachelor of Business Administration (Information Communication Technology), planned to launch in 2020.
Students with entrepreneurial aspirations have expanded learning opportunities through the College’s EPIC Genesis Centre. It is a hub that connects students, alumni, and the community with resources, programs, and support to foster a culture of entrepreneurship on campus and beyond.
Another centre of excellence can be found in the School of Engineering Technology & Skilled Trades. Programs such as Automotive Product Design, Robotics, Biomedical Engineering Technology, and Industrial Automation provide students with opportunities for work integrated learning, applied research projects, and access to real-world manufacturing facilities in the Ford Centre for Excellence in Manufacturing.
Recently, the College completed construction of the National Powerline Training Centre at its Chatham campus, which celebrates our industry partners and supports the popular Powerline Technician program.
St. Clair College is proud to have been the first postsecondary institution to open a campus in downtown Windsor. Three distinct buildings comprise the downtown campus and encompass the programs offered in Media Art & Design, the Zekelman School of Business & Information Technology, and Social Justice and Legal Studies.
The campus hub is the St. Clair College Centre for the Arts, a multi-use facility that is a college campus, banquet and conference facility, and professional theatre. Students pursuing careers
in graphic design, advertising, and hospitality will find themselves immersed in an environment that provides opportunity to practice their skills. The 1,200 seat professional theatre is the perfect setting for students in the Music Theatre Performance program to choreograph and perform outstanding productions throughout the year.
The second facility is the newly opened One Riverside Drive, with new computer and lecture labs and new programs including Data Analytics for Business and International Business Management, both in the Zekelman School of Business & Information Technology.
The third facility is the state-of-the-art MediaPlex. The only one-of-its-kind in Canada, it is home to the Journalism, Media Convergence, and Public Relations programs. Students interested in becoming 21st century journalists and public relations specialists are taught by industry professionals in a fully operational newsroom, television production studio, radio labs, and editing suites.
To round out the student experience, St. Clair College provides on-campus residence accommodations at both its Windsor and Chatham campuses. The College also supports a wide variety of activities including student clubs, leadership opportunities through student government, the newly launched esports Saints Gaming team, and of course, Saints Varsity athletics. And coming in the Fall of 2019, the College will continue its expansion plans with a new Sports Park for soccer, baseball, and beach volleyball. All of this combines to provide students with an outstanding campus experience, both inside and outside the classroom, giving them the chance to “start here and go anywhere”.
