Bringing together some of the world’s top academics, corporations and start-ups, OCAD University’s Digital Futures program is preparing students with the expertise and experience to confidently enter the digital workplace. From data visualization to digital entertainment and wearable technology, the program allows students to explore the future of digital technology through electives, internships, residencies and independent study. The program is overseen by an advisory board that includes Apple, IBM, Microsoft, Ubisoft, City of Toronto, Bell, TSN, TVO broadcasting, Xenophile Media, Idea Couture, RBC Royal Bank, Toronto Arts Foundation, SAP, White Pine Pictures and Stone Canoe. These partners help ensure students are at the cutting edge of digital technologies and have the best possible opportunities to differentiate themselves in this creative workforce.

“The ability to learn, rooted in a sound basis of fundamentals, is what attracts employers. This program is clearly providing exactly that background, teaching students the basics, helping them learn today’s tools but keeping them open to the inevitable evolution and change. They will be the leaders of a tomorrow which is coming faster every day, driving change and opportunity.”
