iMOVE 2018 Undergraduate Student Industry Program awards
At a dinner last week to mark the end of the 2018 intake of the iMOVE Undergraduate Student Industry Program, awards were handed out for the students’ work.
Months on from being matched with industry partners, the students not only worked on the projects, but documented that work in mid-project videos, and an end-of-project video presentation.
An iMOVE panel was assembled to judge the students’ work, and award prizes for Best Video, Runner-up, and Most Improved. We thank the students for their drive and enthusiasm, and the mentors for passing along their advice and experience.
We’re already talking to companies and universities for the 2019 Undergraduate Student Industry Program, and would also like to encourage interested parties to get in touch via the program’s Enquiry Form.
