MITACS: Providing the tools for career development

Don’t get intimidated by the name that suggests the connection to mathematical sciences, currently MITACS has expanded to include many academic industries.  Through MITACS Accelerate internship program graduate students can gain the opportunity to apply their research to real world issues.

I personally find MITACS skill training and entrepreneur workshops very useful. These events are free for UofT students. Last month I attended the Effective Networking workshop led by Donna Messer and the Art of Powerful Conversation presented by Stuart Knight. I really enjoyed both workshops: the speakers were passionate and highly motivating, and the advice they gave was very valuable. Now I am looking forward to the Managing Projects workshop that will take place on May 26.
