Have an idea for a project, an existing project you want to keep developing, or want to start something new? For 8 weeks with the support from our team of mentors, accountability of your project group, and our community, you can make it happen and develop a new skillset.
Our team of mentors all have varied experience in software development. They are excited to share their knowledge and support all the groups through the accelerator.
This is an opportunity to build a software development skillset that goes beyond what is taught in the classroom. The project you work on will not only be something to put on your resume; the experience will prepare you for co-op.
The Accelerator will expose you to other students with similar interests and drive to create. Working with your project group and the various social events throughout the program are great opportunities to form lasting connections.
You don't need a group or a project idea to join! We will help you find a project group with similar project interests as you, and the first workshop is dedicated to brainstorming and ideation.
Coming in with ideas about what you want to work on is great! The accelerator is a group program so you will be teamed up with at least one other person. Ideating with similarly driven and creative people almost always leaves you with something better than what you started with
You can also bring a project that you and your team have already started working on to Oasis. Our mentor team will help resolve any issues that may be blocking progress and help you with the next steps. Signing up for the accelerator is also a great way to hold your team accountable and make some serious progress on the project!
The accelerator provides a great environment for you and your friends pursue the project idea that you have always wanted to build. And also enables you to meet new people and possibly even add new members to your team.
