About DigiPen-KMU Special Program

DigiPen-KMU Special Program is a dual degree program where students spend five semesters at Keimyung University in Daegu, South Korea before completing the program's last four semesters at DigiPen's main campus in Redmond, Washington, USA. (Participants also have the option of finishing their degree at DigiPen's campus in Singapore, instead.)

For the first two years of the program, students study advanced mathematics as well as general computer programming in C/C++ at Keimyung University. Students then apply these subjects to their freshman and sophomore game projects. First-year students create 2D game projects using DigiPenís proprietary Zero Engine editor and a basic graphics engine. Sophomores collaborate on game teams to build their own 2D game and graphics engine.

During the last two years of the program, students study advanced computer science topics at DigiPen in Redmond while taking more elective-based coursework. For their junior-year project, students complete an original 3D game and graphics engine. Students live and work alongside degree candidates from other majors, such as game design and digital art and animation.
