Our Story

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.

In 2008, at the invitation of the Singapore Economic Development Board, DigiPen Institute of Technology Singapore opened as the U.S.-headquartered college’s first international campus, which today offers five bachelor’s degree programs as well as continuing education courses for Singaporeans looking to change or advance their careers. DigiPen (Singapore) graduates have gone on to work in a variety of sectors — including enterprise software, virtual reality, finance, digital entertainment, and automotive technology — of Singapore’s growing digital economy.
