A second example of an EOB Esports Academy Course.
Using the Unity software you will create a game after a games design work package with the support of EOB trainers.
Then we look into 3D Modelling. 3D modelling is the use of computers to create images and graphics that look three dimensional; game designers will use this process to create games. Using software like Maya you will develop your 3D model which will get printed too.
We will have a trip to Nominet to learn about ‘the internet of things’. There will be a master class on technological advances across the web; you will then write an article about your findings, which will be published within The Enemy of Boredoms digital magazine, Oh and you’ll get trained by professional journalists too!
“I especially loved the team building throughout the project, because team communication and efficiency
is imperative to any organisation or company. Furthermore, I got to meet esports industry professionals which provided a great insight into how to get a foothold in the industry.”
“Before the EOB Esports Course, I was just sitting at home, on my own and playing video games. I’ve stayed in touch with my course mates and I’ve now got a
full time job.”
“The EOB Esports Academy gave me such a great experience; I grew as a person and the best thing of all I ended up in a career working for Clock Ltd, a digital agency that makes websites for the likes of Riot Games!”
