Two student teams from Sheridan’s Digital Product Design graduate certificate program recently visited BMO Place in Toronto to present capstone projects that reimagine ways in which the Bank of Montreal supports newcomers to Canada.

Team BMOre members Sanchita Sharma, Savannah Quinn, Xin Peng and Giang Hoang My designed a website that guides users through the transition to life in a new country, featuring information and advice about cost of living, transportation, shopping, medical services, banking products and more.

“With our government committed to welcoming 500,000 immigrants per year by 2025, BMO is seeking ways in which they can support people who are new to Canada. It was fascinating to see how our two teams came at the same problem from two different angles, providing solutions that could inspire or inform BMO’s future products,” says Digital Product Design coordinator Andrew Hladkyj.

“Not only did these students have the chance to collaboratively research, ideate, prototype and refine solutions to a real-world challenge, they also had the opportunity to present their projects in a real-world environment and receive valuable industry feedback.”

Capstone projects by Team WaveMo, Team BMOre and other teams in Sheridan’s Digital Product Design program can be viewed by visiting the 2023 Digital Product Design Grad Showcase webpage.
