"The opportunity that Swinburne provides for our final year games teams to showcase their projects at PAX Australia and conferences like GCAP is a huge boost to their confidence and career ambitions. We now have graduate teams who’ve participated in this go on to form studios with those same projects, hiring newer Swinburne graduates to help them grow."
