50 students from University of Malta to be certified in the programme Unity Game Engine by 2020
By the end of this scholastic year, 50 students from the Department of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Malta will be certified in the programme Unity Game Engine – a certification which is greatly sought after by the digital gaming and e-sports industry. Half of the digital gaming in the world is based on this programme and is therefore used in training the students.
The students can now obtain this certification after an agreement was signed between the University of Malta and Gaming Malta with the aim of encouraging more students to embark on careers in the development of digital gaming.
The Parliamentary Secretary for Financial Services, Digital Economy and Innovation, Silvio Schembri said that with this agreement a complete package will be offered on a solid theoretical foundation and practical sessions based on the experience of Unity to provide the necessary tools which students will require for their future success in this industry.
Professur Alfred Vella, University Rector said that this is another commitment by the University to address the skills which are needed by the new economy with educational programmes which are specifically designed for them.
