Ubisoft Game Lab Competition
Students have 10 weeks to deliver a playable video game prototype that follows the theme, guidelines, and constraints given by a jury of Ubisoft professionals. Each team can count on the support of two mentors from Ubisoft studios in Montreal, Quebec City and Saguenay. At the end of the competition, the jury selects winners in various categories and awards $22,000 in scholarships. Moreover, Ubisoft guarantees at least 10 internships or job opportunities to participants in the competition.

Ubisoft’s scholarship program aims to encourage the most talented students from nine universities across Quebec along their academic path in STEM-related fields. Each year, Ubisoft offers $75,000 in scholarships, half of which is reserved for female students. Once a year, Ubisoft invites the recipients to the Montreal studio to meet employees and discuss the many different programming specialities.
Every year, a team of Ubisoft Montreal employees made up of recruiters and programmers visits Quebec’s engineering faculties to meet students and hold conferences on technological issues. It is an opportunity for students to learn more about the technology used at Ubisoft and find internship opportunities in computer science and software engineering.
The studio offers numerous paid internships within its production teams all year long. Internships are veritable launching pads for careers, as they offer the chance for interns to perfect their expertise and develop a network within the largest video game studio in the world.
Parterships with student clubs
In order to find future talents, Ubisoft works closely with students, professors, and students clubs, such as women in engineering committees, to provide clarity and guidance to students who are interested in pursuing a career in STEM fields. Learn more by reading this interview.
