Graduates of this program will have job-ready skills. Here's what some local industry leaders have to say about the new program:

“I am excited to hear that Langara College will be using the ArtU curriculum in Vancouver. I completed my education at ArtU and it launched my career. Having this excellent education provided me with all the needed knowledge to succeed in the VFX industry and end up as Head of Animation at Digital Domain. I cannot wait to bring inspiring animators from the Langara program onto our projects.”
Jan Philip Cramer, Head of Animation, Digital Domain

“We are delighted to see the launch of innovative programming. Langara College's new programs will produce the highly skilled graduates we need in BC's fast growing interactive entertainment industry and support the continued success of this sector in our province. The Creative Technology sector provides high paying exciting jobs in a creative work environment - not only in the Lower Mainland, but in the vibrant technology hub of Victoria and emerging technology centres such as Kelowna and mid-Vancouver Island. Skills needed in this sector span the range from coding and art to production and business skills. I encourage young BC’ers and those wishing to restart or enhance their careers to consider the incredible opportunities in the creative technology sector, and the excellent training offered by post-secondary solutions such as this.”
Brenda Bailey, Executive Director, DigiBC
