Jun. 15 - Sep. 4
As interns from various departments; with the training we had in the first month, we aimed to deliver a product that helps to maintain a healthy COVID-19 office environment. In the project phase, we were working like we were a company and it taught me how things work in business life. Also, I had a chance to learn and practice many different technologies used in the field. Even though, due to the pandemic, we had to work remotely; I’ve learned a lot, built valuable friendships, and most importantly had so much fun. I appreciate all the effort put into the Academy. I can undoubtedly say that it was a milestone in my career and I feel lucky continuing to work as a part-time software engineer at Borda.
Borda Academy was quite unique this year since the internship was conducted remotely due to Covid-19. Borda however, managed to come up with a well-structured plan for the internship that allowed the interns to integrate well into the company environment. The academy project was an exciting challenge and offered me an opportunity to learn new technologies and hone my technical and soft skills in a professional setting. It gave the interns a chance to take responsibility for the complete product development pipeline, and work collaboratively to build a successful product. I would like to thank the entire Borda family who mentored us throughout the internship and made the interns a part of the wonderful company culture. I have grown as a software engineer and as a person through this program, and I will cherish the wonderful experiences I have had here for a long time to come.
Borda academy was the best internship I've experienced so far. During the academy, I've learned various topics regarding software development, and I was able to demonstrate my skills in the project. Together, we created a great team with my fellow academy members and had a really great time. I must thank Borda Technology for giving me this opportunity, and I must also thank my teammates who made this internship much more entertaining for me.
Borda Academy 2020 Program was an unconventional internship experience for me as it consisted of six weeks of trainings and project research phase and six weeks of implementation. Even though it was an online internship due to the pandemic, I really enjoyed collaborating with my colleagues and delivering a well-working project. I learned a lot about a software project's developing process from design to implementation. Moreover, I was a great experience working with cloud computing platforms that mostly used by big scale companies. Overall it was a pleasure to complete my internship at Borda.
Borda Academy was the most unique internship I ever experienced. Working as a team and having our own work plan for our project, we experienced the everyday struggles of companies as the academy interns. This experience gave us technical and project management educations and experiences at the same time. I believe Borda Academy was a milestone for my career. I am so happy to experience being a part of the Borda family.
Borda academy was an informative and constructive internship experience for me. From the time I got accepted as a software development intern, I realize the environment allows and supports students to learn and experiment more. Thanks to the introductory seminars, I had the chance to learn many subjects that are not limited to software. Even though the internship has concurred with the pandemic, warm and helpful employees stayed in touch with us. This enabled us to always work as a team on problems and made the experience even more enjoyable.
Being a Borda Academy member has gained me valuable experience. From the early stage of the program, I have started the improve myself with training. While gaining project management experience with the project we developed during the academy, I had the pleasure of creating a successful product that incorporates other disciplines such as software and hardware with the opportunities provided by working on a multidisciplinary project. It has been a valuable memory that I will remember my whole life. I have learned many things about life in every way with Borda Academy.
The distinctive plan of Borda Academy is what makes it stands out in such a state that internships are thought of as an ice breaker between students and the workplace. Even at the application stage, Borda Academy diverges from other programs where applicants were given an assignment in their respective fields rather than a brief general ability test or a grammar focused language test. The trainings had comprehensive and useful topics for our project. Working within a team, interworking with other disciplines, and staging a project from the ground up was an invaluable experience for me and I think that is essential for every student too.
Borda Academy Program was really different from other internship programs that I’ve heard of before. I understood from the very first moment that Borda Academy Program focused on to allow interns to gain new skills and knowledge. We took mentoring and had a chance to attend many hardware and software courses that were instructed by professional engineers. After the Borda Academy Program ended, I kept working as a part-time embedded software engineer at Borda.
