New Campus,
New Opportunities

DigiPen (Singapore) has moved to a new campus at SIT@SP and its rigourous, world-class curriculum continues to produce graduates who are highly sought-after by the interactive media industry.

DigiPen Institute of Technology Singapore’s move to the new SIT@SP building signals more than just a change of address. With the new campus, DigiPen (Singapore) now has more space and academic resources for both new and returning students. SIT@SP also houses two of Singapore Institute of Technology’s (SIT) other overseas university partners and the focus of the facility is first and foremost on the needs of higher academia.

In addition to its new campus, DigiPen (Singapore) is partnering with SIT to offer a new joint-degree program, the Bachelor of Engineering with Honours in Systems Engineering (ElectroMechanical Systems) — SEEMS — this September. Last year, the school broadened its outreach beyond Singapore’s polytechnics to Junior Colleges and schools that offer ‘A’-Level and International Baccalaureate programmes.

A history of success

Now in its seventh year, DigiPen (Singapore) has expanded its programme offering and reach every year, developing exciting new partnerships with some of Singapore’s top companies and government bodies.

From the first 27 students who graduated in 2012 to the 110 who are expected to graduate in 2015, DigiPen (Singapore) alumni are continuing to fi ll key positions in Singapore’s growing technology economy. Many DigiPen graduates have gone to work in the video game or entertainment industries straight out of school, finding gainful employment at companies such as Sony Online Entertainment, Microsoft Corporation, and Disney Interactive, to name but a few.

Developing skills for a range of pursuits

The curriculum at DigiPen (Singapore) goes beyond the world of video games. The skills that are taught in each degree programme apply to a wide range of fields and professions, from software engineering to 3D visual effects for film and television.

Regardless of whether a student hopes to go right into creating video games for the world’s leading brands or is looking to explore other careers in technology, a degree from DigiPen (Singapore) gives graduates the flexibility to pursue a variety of employment options.
