The SIEGE Student Showcase affords these college students an opportunity to promote their talent, receive feedback on their work, and inform the broader community regarding the activities of our university programs. Students and student teams will showcase their capstone projects - showing final-year projects that are the culmination of their talent in digital games and assets. You are welcome to examine their creations and vote for the best digital creations. This is also a great event to recruit local talent for your upcoming project.Sponsored By:
