The Bilbao (Spain) Chamber of Commerce and Redmond’s DigiPen Institute of Technology yesterday launched DigiPen Institute of Technology Europe – Bilbao, a school dedicated to growing innovation in the video game and animation industries.

DigiPen Institute of Technology was the first school in the world to offer a Bachelor’s degree in game education, and it is committed to providing an exemplary education and furthering research in digital media and interactive computer technologies.
