Why do we need the PROTOGÉ Initiative?

Technology continues to shape our world at an accelerated pace. Moreover, jobs within the digital economy are at the forefront of this change as they’re fundamentally and inseparably tied to that pace of innovation. However, the way we train for these jobs is rooted in the two-century-old Prussian approach. Therefore, to deliver a workforce capable of meeting the needs of tomorrow a radical new approach is needed in the way we train the next-generation workforce today.

Who is the PROTOGÉ Initiative for?

PROTOGÉ is for those pursuing a job making real-time interactive 3D within the immersive economy. This includes the use of both creative and technical skills in what’s traditionally considered to be only the games and media industries. However, the application of these highly sought-after skills extends into the automotive, architectural, training and simulation, media and entertainment industries. For example, for producing real-time interactive 3D product visualisations for design and marketing purposes, or creating photo-realistic scenes as backdrops in virtual production stages. Realtime interactive 3D skills are the key to your future tech career.

Real-time 3D is associated with a large salary premium: 57% above the average advertised salary and 18% above the average advertised salary for jobs requesting 3D graphics skills in general.
