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.
As a student, I believe that internships are very important for us, where we learn and see the work-life and experience our profession in real life. In most of the internships, companies don't provide the required attention to the interns and they assign basic administration tasks to interns. My experience in Borda is exactly the opposite of the things I describe above, they welcomed us warmly inside their Borda family. Borda family is a term that they call themselves where everyone is a part of this culture and friendship. It was the most productive and fun summer that I have event spent. I strongly believe that everyone should get this experience if they have the opportunity.
The thing I liked the most about Borda Academy is how extensive and well-planned the internship program was. It gave me a platform to learn and work in a professional environment which helped me immensely in my growth as a software engineer. A big shout-out to all the employees at Borda and all my fellow interns. Being a foreigner, it would have been really easy to feel left out. But I would like to thank everyone for being kind and helpful every step of the way. I believe Borda Academy is the perfect package for all students and fresh graduates wanting to get a sense of the industry. My time at Borda was a wonderful experience and I will cherish it forever!
We, Borda Academy interns, learned to work as a team, ending up feeling as if we were a separate company by ourselves. We have undergone and overcome problems that most companies also do face such as keeping in touch between offices in different cities, working together with team members of different native languages, coming up with project ideas and selecting some of those, managing projects with a deadline. In the end, we were able to create our own product for the Borda family to use. To me, Borda Academy was an adventure in which I’ve met lovely people while learning precious information both from technical fields and within the context of project lifecycles.
We received software, hardware and project management training in the first month of the 3-month internship. After the training sessions are completed, we were asked to develop with a “Livable Office” concept. During this project, we learned to collaborate and work as a team player and distribute the workload between the team members. During all phases of the project, BORDA employees helped and guided us. Borda Academy is a perfect environment for learning and adapting new technologies with its dynamic and start-up culture. Every employee sees themselves as a part of the Borda family which bring unity and workspace happiness; we enjoyed working within this family.
Borda Academy was the most important step in my career. We have started to the program with the trainings and following R&D researches about new Technologies. We have been able to see R&D Project development. Borda Academy gave us the opportunity to contribute to the R&D process and we have made scientific researches. Borda Academy was a real “Academy” for me. During and after the Borda Academy program I felt like I am a part of the Borda Family.
I joined Borda Academy as an Embedded Systems intern and was responsible for the hardware and embedded system software processes of various IoT projects under the theme of Smart Office. During the internship period, we tried to answer all the stages from the creation of the idea to the end-user product as a team with interns in other departments, and I have to say that I had a very productive three-month internship experience. Apart from the efficient internship experience, the attitude of the company employees, which are always warm and helpful, has enabled us to have nice and family-friendly work experience.
I had one of the most beautiful time of my life in Borda Academy program. It was so much more than a Software Development internship. We had a comprehensive training program, we worked on a project with all the interns and we had the most exciting demo day altogether. There were monthly equinox parties that we had lots of fun in a family environment. I continue working as a part-time software engineer at Borda, and I am happy to be part of this family.
I have build up my computer engineer skills during my internship. I also learned about the culture of Borda Technology. I experienced about software processes in a project, layers of a project and to see how to so many software technologies work together in a harmonious manner in a project. I am so happy that at the end of my three-month internship experience I have worked with a great team and learned new technologies. At the end of the internship, I started working as a part-time software analyst at Borda Technology.
