DigiPen Institute of Technology isn't your typical college. Located in Redmond, Washington, a global hub for video game development with over 350 interactive media companies nearby, DigiPen prepares students to enter the industry as world-class programmers, artists, designers, and engineers ready to face the challenges of creating cutting-edge software and entertainment media. DigiPen offers a unique approach to education. Rather than selecting their major after they begin their studies, our students apply directly to one of DigiPen's eight undergraduate and two graduate degree programs and start learning the fundamentals of their field from their first day of class. DigiPen's curriculum combines rigorous academic courses in foundational subjects like math, physics, and computer science (for BS in Computer Science in Real-Time Interactive Simulation students) or color, tone, and composition (for BFA in Digital Art and Animation students) with practical, team-based projects where students create their own games, animations, and even computer hardware under real-world conditions. Throughout their education, students benefit from small class sizes and personal attention from faculty who are deeply invested in their success.
