Offered by Myplanet, Fellowship represents a unique approach to industry learning. Fellows work as part of a team with other bright students in the realms of user experience design, software development and project management as they're guided through the lifecycle of digital product development.
Fellows are ambitious students who are looking to gain hands-on work experience while they complete their degrees. They're introduced to many of the processes used at Myplanet and will use this model to build a viable digital product to add to their portfolios.
Fellows will work as members of a self-sufficient scrum team to foster agile thinking, creativity and collaboration. Each team consists of developers and designers.
Fellows choose a problem they wish to tackle and decide what to build to deliver the best possible solution. They select their own tools and we provide lessons as necessary.
By simulating Myplanet's internal structure, Fellows gain a thorough understanding of how we work. They learn how to apply the same processes that we use daily.
Fellowship offers students a complementary experience to their post-secondary education. Fellows are given the chance to apply those skills learnt in school in a multi-disciplinary team environment that nurtures creativity and teaches disciplined execution.
While working as a member of a production team, Fellows learn to build and deliver the right product quickly -using the very same process that our organization has tested and validated with our clients. By showing you how we do things at Myplanet, we aim to inspire you to apply these practices in future jobs or businesses of your own.
As a Fellow, you'll gain unique industry experience that will differentiate you from other graduating students. You'll be a desirable candidate for hiring upon completion of the program, as you'll understand the symbiosis that must exist between designers and developers in digital product development.
You'll build a strong network of ambitious peers who may enable opportunities for you down the road. You'll learn from passionate mentors who are invested in your success, and you may even be offered a full-time position at Myplanet upon graduation. If you're looking to enhance your post-secondary journey beyond the classroom, Fellowship offers the solution.
To be considered for Fellowship, you must have a passion for the digital space and be currently enrolled in college or university program related to design or development. Examples of such programs include computer science, computer engineering, software programming, graphic design, interaction design, digital design, industrial design and IT management.
We welcome applicants who are pursuing undergraduate, postgraduate, masters, diploma and certificate programs. International students are welcome to apply provided they hold current work permits.
Following the expansion of our Fellowship program in past years, we're now offering 10 day intensive programs in both Ottawa and Vancouver in addition to our regular 12 week program that takes place in Toronto on Saturdays.
Intensives will provide the same learning experience as our traditional Fellowship in a shorter period of time. Fellows involved in an intensive program will attend class every day for 10 consecutive days, from 10AM-6PM.
