What advice would you give to another RMIT students who want to apply for the program?
Sajid Pakirdeen: “I would highly recommend it. It is a great opportunity to explore your interests in a new and different way. The program is designed to provide a hands-on, collaborative learning experience that will challenge you and push you out of your comfort zone. Embrace this experience and be open to learning new things, even if they are outside your usual area of expertise. Also, don't be afraid to ask for help from the mentors Steph and Beck. They are highly knowledgeable and experienced, and they are there to support and encourage you every step of the way. They monitor your progress accordingly and provide clear instructions. Take advantage of their expertise and seek feedback to help you grow and improve. Overall, the RMIT Apple Foundation Program is a fantastic opportunity to develop your skills and knowledge in app development, design thinking as well as to improve your interpersonal skills.”
What do you want to do after completing this program?
Chelsea Corbett: “I’m thinking of pursuing a career in technology design after completing this program. I have been researching various related courses so that I can study this area further.”
Pray Manuel: “After completing this program, I aim to enroll in similar short-term courses that are available both online and offline. Additionally, it would be great to solidify the app my team developed and pitch it to RMIT Activator as a starting point.”
Sajid Pakirdeen: “My current goal is to continue improving my coding skills in Swift language, which I learned as part of the program to land my job as a software engineer.”
