DigiPen Institute of Technology was founded by Claude Komairin 1988 in Vancouver, BC, Canada as a computer simulation and 3D animation company.
With the increasing demand for simulation and animation building, DigiPen has had a hard time finding the suitable talent for the job.
As a result, in 1990, DigiPen created a 3D computer animation curriculum to train people to lead this industry.
In the same year, DigiPen collaborated with Nintendo America to create a post-secondary program (post-secondary education), and it has been recognized as a computer graphics school in Vancouver, BC, Canada, by providing Diploma courses (two years) of a 2D, and a 3D video game programming art in 1994.
Currently, we offer 9 undergraduates and 2 master's degrees.
