Success of FUI Students in Summer Fellowship Program & Rookie Game Jam 2021 by Mindstorm Studios, San Francisco
ORIC had brought Mindstorm Studios, San Francisco to FUI's students and encouraged them for Summer Fellowship Program, which is an 8-week long nationwide program, tailored specifically for students to cover different facets of game development such as Game Design, Game Programming and Game Arts. This year, 1600x students from all over Pakistan applied for this program, out of which 3x were from Foundation University Islamabad. To put learning to practical use, the initiative also included mandatory participation in Pakistan’s largest Student Game Jam, called the Rookie Game Jam powered by Mindstorm Studios, in which participants formed teams and were tasked to produce a mobile game from scratch. This year, 270x participated (grouped in 76x teams) in the Rookie Game Jam and successfully completed the program. The overall prize pool of the program was PKR 1x Million. We feel immense pleasure to share that Lieba Nadeem (Bachelor of Computer Arts) and Raania Nur (Bachelor of Software Engineering) have successfully completed the Summer Fellowship Program & Rookie Game Jam 2021 and Nabi Bin Pasha, a recent graduate of Foundation University Islamabad, has also been hired by Mindstorm Studios, San Francisco as a Senior 3D Artist.
