DACC Animation and Game Design Students get accepted into Valve-U.

CMT's Game Design and Animation program at Creative Media Technology at the Dona Ana Community College has been accepted by Valve-U because of the commitment and leadership of Mike Brown, Assistant Professor in Animation & Gaming CMT. Valve-U is the educational licensing wing of the world renowned developer Valve that is one of the best game developers in the world who consistently deliver Game of the Year award winning games.

Valve also creates industry leading technology in their Source engine which powers all of their games. Valve has always had a very strong connection with their community and has hired talent from the community modification or "mod" teams. They have extended this commitment to Industry leading colleges such as UAT, San Francisco School of Art, Digipen and now DACC. It is an honor to be a member of this elite group.

By joining Valve-U CMT/DACC is going to receive all of Valve's industry leading SDK's (software development kits). This will allow students to actually work with the same tools and technology that Valve and its partners are using. Michael Brown has already created industry current curriculum that will incorporate Valve's Source engine in a multitude of classes. With this new partnership the Game Design and Animation students are getting a fantastic opportunity to work with industry leading technology and be very well prepared for jobs in the gaming industry as they graduate.
