The Mitacs Accelerate program allowed me to work on an innovative project that is in sync with the future of a flourishing industry, especially in a city like Québec where many of the big players of the video game world work hard at developing new and cutting edge approaches to create new gaming experiences.
The Mitacs Accelerate internship provided a fantastic opportunity to grow as an engineer in training and to become familiar with the challenges faced in realizing the commercial potential of my research.
One of the truly unique aspects of the Mitacs Elevate program is the availability of professional development workshops. As a career student, I had rarely been exposed to a formal work environment and these courses have been truly beneficial to my development as a researcher.
