CEO / Co-founder, AlterCulture Studios

2020 BAGD Graduate

I co-founded AlterCulture Studios, a management consultancy firm that harnesses the potential of games to facilitate organizational development and bring about positive cultural change, upon graduation. One of the biggest misconceptions that those who are not in this industry have is about what games are and I hope to change that through the work my company does. People often limit their understanding of games purely to video games, but games can go beyond entertainment. On a personal level, the skills I’ve learned in game design modules at DigiPen (Singapore) are not only applicable to games, but in any form of interactive experience.

Alvin Lui

Software Engineer, ST Engineering

2020 CE Graduate

Though I picked up strong fundamentals in technical skills such as C programming during the AnT Programme for Embedded Software Developer, my key takeaway wasn’t just what I was taught, but how I was taught. During the course, there was minimal spoon-feeding. Instead, we were given lots of room to explore, research, and learn on our own. This approach is similar to what I experience in the workplace now, where I am given a requirement and it is up to me to devise my own methods to fulfill that requirement. Without DigiPen (Singapore)’s training, I would have felt intimidated by such an environment. But now, I view such situations as opportunities.

2020 CE Graduate

I chose to enroll in DigiPen (Singapore)’s AnT Programme for Embedded Software Developer as it was not only a good chance to expand my skills, but also a good opportunity to enter big multinational corporations despite having limited relevant experience. Though the course was taught at a very fast pace, my classmates and I bonded well and supported each other through it. Our lecturers were always helpful and friendly as well, and I appreciated their effort — together with the admin staff — who helped to ensure that our lessons could continue virtually during the pandemic period. If anyone else is considering a career switch, I’d encourage them to step out of their comfort zones, be humble, and just go for it. it is definitely doable and worth it in the end.

2020 CE Graduate

As part of DigiPen (Singapore)’s AnT Programme for Cybersecurity Software Developer, I picked up new programming languages such as Go, Python, and x86 Assembly. I was keen to expand my knowledge in the area of cybersecurity as I knew that this was a booming field, given how digitally connected the world now is. After graduating from the program, I’m now a junior QA engineer where I help to fix, review, and test bugs that have been assigned to me. For those who are considering a career switch, I encourage them not to be afraid when it comes to learning new things. Don’t be afraid of failure either, as only the extremely lucky succeed on their first try.

I get to craft deep and immersive worlds for others – something I’ve dreamed of doing since I was young. My time at DigiPen (Singapore) has given me the foundation I need to thrive in my career. Besides equipping students with strong technical skills in scripting and design, DigiPen (Singapore) stands out by giving students the chance to design original game or software projects from scratch. These project classes are by far the highlight of every trimester. From concept, to production, to completion, each project requires immense planning and hard work to pull through and will put one’s technical and soft skills to the test. These experiences gave me a good introduction to the nature and expectations of game development, which helps me in my job today.

2019 BSCSRTIS Graduate

DigiPen (Singapore) students are invariably prepared to handle roles and responsibilities beyond their stipulated mandate thanks to the multidisciplinary projects that we do throughout our years in school. These projects have taught me that in a small team, members have to cover for each other and wear multiple hats at times to get things done. This couldn’t be truer in a startup environment where things move fast – you could be preparing technical documents one day and be presenting financial figures to a completely different audience the next.

In my role, I use industry-standard software such as 3ds Max, ZBrush, and Substance Painter to model and texture photorealistic 3D virtual objects and environments through photogrammetry and integrating them into Unreal Engine. I was actually apprehensive of doing anything 3D-related before joining DigiPen (Singapore), but the strong foundations that I learned in school have given me the confidence to pursue a career as a 3D artist. I will gladly continue this path for the rest of my life.

I work as a technical animator in a game company in Tokyo where I do computer animation, and sometimes create production tools, for the team. This has given me the exciting opportunity to work on many famous IPs that come out of Japan.

I do game art and quest design at my own company, The Gentlebros. Seeing my stories come to life, working with friends to create a game title to call our own, and pushing through any difficulties together — these are just some of the highlights of my job so far.

What I love most about my job is being able to work on movies that will be enjoyed and experienced by many generations to come. Being able to work on movies like Avengers: Endgame and Ready Player One have been some of my biggest career highlights so far.

DigiPen (Singapore) is a melting pot of creativity, talent, and hard work. Its environment has enabled me to brainstorm ideas, learn up-to-date industry skills, and build a strong network even before entering the industry. I have many fond memories of the school that continues to grow, including being part of the alumni committee twice. As a former lecturer who is now a producer in a local game company, the experiences I have gained from DigiPen (Singapore) have been invaluable.

DigiPen (Singapore) taught me many practical and soft skills which have been a big help in my career. These include the importance of storytelling, working within constraints, always having a Plan B, and learning to communicate effectively. In particular, I also appreciate how lecturers such as Dilip Chaubey encouraged me to be an independent and problem-solving individual. This has been invaluable in my entrepreneurial journey so far.

I remember having to work late into the night for several projects during my time at DigiPen. But I did this with my fellow course mates and we encouraged one another to push on. This has forged a special camaraderie between us and built many strong friendships that still last till this day.
