Opportunities to connect with the Centre for Digital Media on R&D projects with Master of Digital Media students
20 Nov 2021 by DigiBC

DigiBC members have the opportunity to connect with the Centre for Digital Media on R&D projects with their Master of Digital Media (MDM) students. This is a win-win scenario where companies can have R&D/proof-of-concept/playable demo work completed in a cost-effective partnership while assessing potential talent to hire. In turn, students make connections and can get real-world industry and portfolio experience. Check out the video below to hear about testimonials from past industry project clients.
