Red River College Polytechnic is proud to be partnering with Riipen to help organizations of all sizes connect with students on short-term projects and virtual internships. Through Riipen, employers have the opportunity to more easily find and connect with our talented students.
In-class projects allow you to connect with one of our educators to embed your project into the students’ curriculum. Become the real-life case study for students in the classroom. Virtual internships are similar to in-person internships, except they are project based with a clear outcome and are primarily done online.
Projects can take any form, from case studies and market research to data analytics or software development. Projects can be delivered to you as presentations, policy papers, an advertisement campaign, or can be run as a pitch competition, hackathon, and anything in between.
Employers in our network have free access to Red River College Polytechnic’s portal on Riipen.
Create an account on Riipen through RRC Polytech’s portal.
Post an in-class project, virtual internship or extra-curricular challenge for students.
Connect with one or more teams of students who will work on your projects.
Give feedback to students, receive their insights and build a talent pool of students for future roles at your company.
Solve your business challenges in the form of fully-subsidized, short-term, on-demand Level UP projects online, in collaboration with top student talent from across Canada.
