Welcome to RDP!

Red Deer Polytechnic is more than a post-secondary institution. 

We are a community of dedicated and skilled faculty, staff, learners and partners who are making a positive impact in the world.  

Unbound by tradition, the education and training offered at RDP are fundamentally applied, skills-based and integrated with industry needs.

We proudly serve our students and Alberta communities, contributing to the economic and social priorities of our province.

Red Deer Polytechnic’s mandate, mission, vision and values guide us in everything we do.

As we look to the future our 2030 Strategic Plan: Productivity & Social Impact will guide us.
