Game Programmer – Unity3D (Zengami)

“I wanted to do a degree in programming, but I wasn’t too sure if it was to be general or game programming. I saw that Informatics had Gaming & Animation courses, and I thought that would be interesting to do, so I went for it! I enrolled in the Gaming & Animation Diploma, then went on to complete my Advanced Diploma and Degree here. I’ve been in Singapore for five years and enjoyed being in Informatics.”
