Featured Guest of the Week: DigiPen

Joing us in our Exhibition Hall is DigiPen Institute of Technology.  DigiPen has campuses in Redmond, WA, in Singapore, and near Bilbao, Spain. DigiPen offers bachelor’s and master’s degree programs, which require students to apply their learning in computer science, computer engineering, art, game design, music, and sound design to the creation of video games.

DigiPen was founded by Nintendo co-founder Claude Comair, and is the only educational institution whose students have been nominated in the professional category at the Independent Games Festival. Additionally, DigiPen students have placed the largest number of student projects in the Independent Games Festival student showcase every year since it began, with a seven-year total of 24 awards given to 23 winning game projects

DigiPen will have a station in the Exhibition Hall with information, games, staff to ask questions, and more!
