Continental in Singapore, serving as a major engineering resource and competence pool for the growing demand of engineering capacities in Asia, has been establishing networks with various recognised educational institutions jointly with EDB.
The ties between DigiPen (Singapore) and Continental received a shot in the arm with an announced strategic partnership that is expected to bring both parties even closer.
Despite facing steep competition from reputable gaming companies, Continental has 13 R&D employees that hail from DigiPen (Singapore), of which 12 are from the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science in Real-Time Interactive Simulation (RTIS) program and one from the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Game Design (BSGD) program.
We would like to thank DigiPen (Singapore) for their support and DigiPen (Singapore) alumni who have chosen us as the Employer of Choice. We look forward to a greater partnership with the Institute and welcome more DigiPen (Singapore) graduates to be part of Continental.
