Our Industry Partners work closely with the Centre for Digital Media and the Master of Digital Media program to promote exceptional industry and academic collaboration.
The Master of Digital Media program was created by the industry for the industry. Our first industry partners recognized a growing need for savvy, creative innovators and entrepreneurs who could lead the booming new media sector. This founding partnership has grown into a broad network of businesses and organizations that work with the Centre and MDM students, including some of the world's leading companies such as Electronic Arts, Mozilla, Autodesk and Microsoft.
Our partners provide students with internships, employment opportunities. and they work with students on accelerated collaborative projects to develop ideas and prototypes. Industry partners can also sponsor workshops, offer guest lectures and even become instructors at the CDM. In return, we connect businesses and organizations with our unique, cross-disciplinary pool of MDM students, faculty and researchers—some of the best up-and-coming talent in British Columbia.
