A cutting-edge international education in Computer Science and Game Design is now here; study locally without incurring the high costs of going overseas!

The technology sector is the fastest-growing industry all over the world. Technology changes the way we live, work, study and play. 

Behind every computer, smartphone, digital device and at the core of every piece of software that powers them is the work of generations of computer scientists – professionals who are responsible for inventing the technologies that shape our future.

In this day where everything is at our fingertips, the wonders of technology is something to be in awe of. Technology is a very driven industry motivated by never-ending competition and constant demand for more – faster, better and more efficient. 

Though it can be challenging and often requires a solid command of skills to be successful, working in the computer science and tech industry is one of the most rewarding. 

Aside from having some of the highest starting rate out there, the profession also promises a global career where one can start their career and thrive in any part of the world.

With trending technologies such as the metaverse, 6G, blockchain, cloud computing, big data, AI (artificial intelligence), AR (augmented reality) and more being in demand, there is now a need for more talents well versed in computer science, have a knack for innovation, and the capability to bring ideas to life. 

There is a call for education institutions to produce graduates who are able to take on the role of creators. Computer science and digital technology graduates are more sought-after today than ever before. This is where an education in this specialised field comes into picture.
