DigiPen Institute of Technology’s Global Impact
Beginning in 1998, DigiPen Institute of Technology became the first school in the world to offer a four-year degree with a primary emphasis on preparing students for the complex challenges of creating real-time 3D graphics for games and animations. Today, our academic programs continue to provide a solid educational pathway for students looking to enter — and advance — the digital entertainment and technology industries as skilled engineers, artists, designers, and more.
DigiPen Institute of Technology Europe-Bilbao opened in 2011 as DigiPen’s third global campus and has been steadily contributing to the growing digital economy of Spain’s Basque region and beyond. Our graduates have gone on to work at leading game and animation studios in Spain and throughout Western Europe.
Find Your Future in a Burgeoning Industry
Success in the video game and animation industries requires innovation, creativity, and technical excellence. The market for highly qualified personnel in these industries is very competitive across Europe, forcing many companies that are unable to find qualified domestic employees to pay the high cost of relocating foreign workers from the U.S.A. and Asia. We seek to address this problem by educating students in Europe to become skilled creative professionals, ready to meet the demands of the expanding digital interactive entertainment industry.
