Diploma in Game Design (R35)

What You Will Learn

Acquire technical and design skills to create board and digital games. Develop capabilities in rapid prototyping, simulation and level/sound/character/interactive design, as well as augmented and virtual reality.

Master a variety of software tools to create immersive and engaging game experiences.

Experience a 20-week Industry Immersion Programme at leading game companies such as Gumi Asia, IGG Singapore, and Ubisoft.

I always seek creative outlets that will allow me to express myself freely and DGD is the perfect place for that. In addition to developing useful skills in game production, I have also learnt transferable life skills such as organisational behaviour. It is especially helpful to have experienced and enthusiastic lecturers who came from the industry to share their experiences with us.
