Award-winning co-development video game studio D3T has announced its partnership with the UK’s only Unity Centre of Excellence at HOST.
HOST is the home of Skills and Technology, aiming to support students, professionals and small businesses in technical skills and innovation.
The centre, which is based at MediaCity and operated by IN4 Group is promising to supply guidance and supported learning for games programming students through industry professionals ready to provide the tools and knowledge needed for students to advance.
D3t will be offering the centre support by a combination of workshops, roundtables and new start-up projects.
The company is also part of Keywords Studios, an international technical and creative services providers to the video games industry, and is credited on titles such as Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
With a combined 450 years of industry insight and experience, the company is more than qualified to lend a hand to the technologists of tomorrow.
Phil Owen, Head of Engineering at D3T said: “We have a close relationship with the team at HOST and we were keen to be a part of this project right from the get-go. Entering at such an early stage ensures that both students and members alike can start to get the advice and support they need without delay.
“At D3T, supporting and mentoring the next generation of games programmers, on a wide variety of game development environments, including Unity and Unreal, is a key focus of ours.”
Having worked with universities and initiatives locally and nationally already, the video game development studio is eager to continue its work with HOST.
The Unity Centre of Excellence at HOST delivers cutting-edge skills development and helps fast-track students into leading professional roles in the technology sector.

The support on offer will be vital towards developing digital pioneers with the technical skills they need to innovate and grow in their careers.”
