Tech companies like Ross Video and Nokia Canada are hiring fewer students this year, but expect to bounce back soon.

Ottawa’s Ross Video has partnered with Carleton University on a new initiative to foster talent and innovation in robotics, AI, digital systems and hardware design, the university announced Tuesday. 

The three-year partnership will provide opportunities to new and current students through cooperative education, internships, research initiatives and experiential learning. 

“As a long-time collaborator with Carleton University, we are thrilled to establish this integrated partnership that combines our shared expertise and commitment to innovation,” said CEO David Ross in a release.

The company, an Ottawa-based live event and video production tech manufacturer, has supported Carleton’s co-op program since 2001. Over the course of the partnership, Ross Video plans to expand its co-op hires and explore opportunities for internships. 

“Carleton’s exceptional talent in science and engineering, coupled with their dedication to producing top-notch graduates, makes them an ideal partner for Ross Video,” said Ross. “We are confident that together we will push the boundaries of technology and advance the live event and video production industry.” 

In the release, the university said that the initiative will help create a stronger workforce for the video and live event production industry overall. 

“Partnerships between academic institutions and industry are a critical factor in accelerating solutions to the world’s most pressing issues,” said Jerry Tomberlin, interim president and vice-chancellor at Carleton.

“We take pride in our deep expertise in science and engineering and our commitment to producing exceptional talent and research that will make a difference. This partnership with Ross Video is a natural fit. We are excited about this integrated partnership and look forward to the successes we will achieve together.”

According to the release, Carleton researchers and students will work with the company to explore product design and development, with image stabilization techniques for robotic camera systems as just one research area. 

Future collaborations will explore AI-related technologies, the university said. 

“We are very pleased to partner with Ross Video to advance research and development in robotics, artificial intelligence, and digital systems and hardware design,” said Rafik Goubran, vice-president of research and international. “The research has the potential to transform the industry and create significant opportunities for students, and we look forward to working closely with Ross Video to achieve these goals.”
