Award-winning game designers

Award-winning game designers Swinburne students Mitchell Brien and Finnian Millour, have been awarded the prestigious Game Design and Development Award at the 2012 Global Adobe Design Achievement Awards for their video game 'Orpheus'.

The students were flown to the DesignThinkers conference in Toronto for the awards ceremony and were awarded $3000 for their winning project.

Chosen from more than 5,000 entries from students around the world, the game was created over an eight week period, using pen and paper to story board ideas before creating the game with Adobe Flash and Adobe Illustrator.

Student experience - Samantha

Bachelor of Engineering (Telecommunication and Network Engineering)(Honours)

"Swinburne was the only university that offered the course Iwanted. The final-year project allowed me to learn a lot more about network programming and to increase my scripting skills. Through the contacts I had made during my Industry-Based Learning placement at Cisco Systems I was able to interview experienced people in industry, which meant I could add an extra dimension to the project."
