A breakdown of graduates who received job offers

What is the content industry?

The content industry is related to documents, voices, video pictures, game software, and other information content. It includes industries such as animations, films, games, television, the Web, mobile, product design, architecture, spatial design, amusement(gaming), adverising, publishing and printing.

Industry hopes for DHU graduates

A number of corporations call for human resources who are equipped with the latest knowledge in digital technology and methods of expression. Here is one expression of industry leaders' hopes for what DHU graduates might bring to the content industry and a message of encouragement to current students.

It is our desire that students gain 'undefeatable' strengths and a passion for production.

Takehisa Yoshimura

Digital Frontier Inc.

Company profile: Digital Frontier Inc.

A comprehensive film production company engaging in the production of digital video and CG for blockbusters such as the Resident Evil series and Wolf Children.

What we look for in human resources

We look for those who have special competitive skills in the modeling of characters and backgrounds (three-dimensional object formation), effects (special effects), and animation. However, it is not always true that we only hire people based on their technical strengths. All CG production is done in a team setting. Thus, it is also crucial to have communication skills to be able to connect and get on with work toward one goal as a team. We would like to see students who know what they want in their career, are passionate and drive themselves forward in order to grow.

What we expect from DHU

Today, the CG industry seeks high quality. Many DHU students have strengths in modeling and effects. Because they take four years to study CG production, we also recognize that they have achieved a high standard. We want students to take up the challenge of trying various things while enjoying their personal and profesisonal development. Without enjoying themselves, it is impossible to create high-quality entertainment. We look forward to seeing human resources who have strong aspirations for production and exceptional skills.

Introducing DHU's Career Center

DHU is proud of its strong industry linkages and which we make full use of through our dedicated career center to give students an edge in seeking their first career opportunity.
