Connections is an Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) collaborative talent program that brings together final-year college and university students and innovative Ontario companies. Connections offers students the opportunity to apply technical and professional skills to real-world problems, helping them grow as innovators and leaders in business.
Connections projects are diverse, but in all cases students act as consultants or subcontractors to their industry partners. They must develop their own scope of work, meet regularly with their industry partner, and deliver results. The ultimate purpose of the Connections program is to provide an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and skills to an industry-relevant problem.
Funds for the Connections program are currently fully committed. Email program contact for more details.
