The Bilbao Chamber of Commerce and DigiPen Institute of Technology (USA) is opening a branch campus in Bilbao dedicated to growing innovation in the video game and animation industries.
It is hoped that the launch of DigiPen in Europe will foster connections and relationships with industry-leading multinationals, which in turn, will encourage innovation, enterprise, as well as research and development, in Bilbao, the Basque Country, and surrounding areas. This growth in the video game, digital imaging and communication industries, will be propelled by a well-educated and qualified workforce, and will help develop Bilbao into a European leader of the digital simulation industry.
DigiPen Institute of Technology was the first school in the world to offer a Bachelor’s degree in game education, and it is committed providing an exemplary education and furthering research in digital media and interactive computer technologies. Through the work of its students, faculty and staff, DigiPen strives to empower and inspire the industry around the globe. Currently, DigiPen has a campus in Redmond, WA, USA and another in Singapore.
