Centers of Excellence

Fostering the Next Generation of Game Developers


Centers of Excellence (CoE) is TLM’s initiative to foster and mentor the next generation of game developers. Working with schools, profressors and students we offer internships, Game Jam participation, mentoring and support for your program.

What is the Centers of Excellence (CoE)

We currently have a CoE Mexico established with the Tecnológico de Monterrey and are in our 3rd term of internships with their students. Although we’ve been focused on art and design in the initial terms, we hope to expand opportunities for Engineering, Production, and Project Management to mentor students in modules relevant to those disciplines.
