Campus Life

Introducing our exciting campus life of the 2 years.


    Mutual cooperation project of "company" x "student"

    Representatives from companies visit our campus and collaborate with students on a single project. 
    The resulting work is actually shared with customers, allowing students to gain practical experience. Let's accumulate various experiences, not just technical skills.

  • On-campus Production

    This is group work focused on creating works used for events both inside and outside the campus, as well as handling frequent production requests from companies. We consider the department as a single production unit and work together without distinction in specialization to aim for the completion of the project.

  • Portfolio Exhibition

    The most important thing in job hunting is your portfolio. It's a chance for companies to see your work and receive direct advice from production professionals.

  • Exhibiting at external events

    Our school has a track record of exhibiting for over 20 consecutive years since 1999! In addition to industry research visits, we showcase and allow visitors, nearly 200,000 each year, to play the games we have created.
