Take your ideas forward

When you partner with Centre for Digital Media, we pair your expertise with a multidisciplinary team of four to six students to explore applied technology-focused challenges in search of innovative results.

How does it work?

You can propose projects that span various industries, academic and research, not-for-profits, or community-focused initiatives. Under the guidance of faculty subject matter experts, you’ll work with a diverse team of students on a 12-week project that follows industry-standard development processes.
