Australian institution joins NaturalMotionâ??s Academic Partner Program

The Academy of Interactive Entertainment, an Australian academic institution, has signed up to Oxford-based NaturalMotion’s Academic Partner Program.

As a result, the school will receive a site-wide endorphin licence, as well as early access to some of NaturalMotion’s upcoming 3D technology. AIE is the first Australian university to commit to teaching endorphin in its courses.

"Endorphin is one of the most exciting tools in 3D production today, and the Academy of Interactive Entertainment is genuinely thrilled to be working with NaturalMotion to give our students the opportunity to work with it to strengthen their industry-ready skills,” said Matt Curtis, head of school, AIE Melbourne.

“The AIE leads Australian training for the game industry by teaching state-of-the-art technologies that the industry uses, so endorphin is a natural fit into our professional games development course."
