In conjunction with Ubisoft’s recent announcement of opening a studio here in the Philippines, the game developer and publisher well known for creating the Assassin’s Creed Franchise has also announced their partnership with one of the country’s most prestigious academic institutions, De La Salle University, regarding academic programs set for future Game Developers.

The partnership between DLSU and Ubisoft will produce 2 new undergraduate courses fro the institution, namely: the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science Major in Game Development beginning Academic Year 2017-2018, and Bachelor of Science in Entertainment and Multimedia Computing beginning Academic Year 2018-2019. These 2 courses will be made available in DLSU’s tech complex in Laguna, the same location in which Ubisoft’s studio will also be housed.

With opening up these 2 new courses, DLSU and Ubisoft hopes to help breed the new  generation of Filipino video game developers, and  designers by equipping them with necessary skills that will assist them in different video game related career paths. DLSU also notes that future enrollees for the future academic courses need not to be pre-equipped with computer or software programming knowledge but rather “must be passionate about software development“.
