Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — The path to becoming a game developer just got easier.

De La Salle University (DLSU) forged a partnership with leading gaming industry player Ubisoft to further promote technology research and innovation in the country.

Ubisoft is behind the "Assassin's Creed" games.

The partnership was formally announced on Tuesday (March 29) at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel.

The DLSU College of Computer Studies and Ubisoft is set to launch two new undergraduate courses:

Bachelor of Science in Computer Science Major in Game Development (beginning Academic Year 2017-2018)

Bachelor of Science in Entertainment and Multimedia Computing (beginning Academic Year 2018-2019)

Both programs will be housed at the DLSU Science and Technology Complex in Laguna.

“The university recognizes the need to integrate industry-driven skills and experience into its technology research and innovation programs. The alliance with Ubisoft will help provide this," said DLSU President Br. Raymundo Suplido FSC.

"Moreover, this will add to the university’s globalized standards and give our students the opportunity to enrich their competencies in this field of study.”

Aside from the courses, training programs and internships are also be supported by the partnership.

Ubisoft personnel will participate in co-teaching services, while La Salle students will be prioritized for internships.
