OCAD University students sat down recently with representatives from 19 companies from the digital industries to learn more about the businesses and make career connections.

The Digital Futures program has been hosting Industry Day for three years, inviting industry partners to present their companies, projects and vision to students for internships and other opportunities. This year, participating companies included Ubisoft, Vice Media, Corus Entertainment and Idea Couture.

The students offer value to the host organizations through their expertise in digital innovation driven by OCAD U’s curriculum in wearables, game design, transmedia, design fiction, AR/VR development, Internet of Things, mobile and location-based design, ideation and rapid prototyping.

The event is open to both graduate and undergraduate students at all levels seeking summer internships. The internships are linked to courses with academic outcomes that expand the scope of students’ studies at OCAD U.

This initiative occurs in partnership with OCAD U’s Centre for Emerging Artists and Designers (CEAD), which provides ongoing support for any paid internships that may emerge from the event.
