Brad's Story

Brad Donaldson became Vice President, Academic at SAIT Polytechnic in March 2015. For four years previous, he was the Vice President, Academic at Red Deer College. No stranger to SAIT, Brad was the Dean of the School of Manufacturing and Automation at the institution from 2005 to 2011.

Twenty years in engineering and manufacturing gives Brad a strong background in process and structure, but he credits his time in post-secondary for teaching him the importance of people in delivering solid educational experience.

Brad has a Bachelor of Applied Science and a master’s degree, both specializing in Chemical Engineering from the University of Toronto. He is currently completing a Doctor of Education in Post-Secondary Leadership at the University of Calgary.

Brad is active in the community and plays a role in several provincial committees, including the Alberta Senior Academic Officers and the Alberta Association in Higher Education for Information Technology.


Brad is a member of Team Calgary, Calgary Economic Development’s corporate partnership program. Team Calgary engages visionary business leaders to shape the future of Calgary.

Why Calgary?

"Calgarians recognize the value of applied education to enable individual and economic growth."
