IGDA Student SIG Logo


The Student SIG is one of the most active communities in the IGDA. We are a global community of students, professionals, and academics who are passionate about helping people start successful careers in the games industry.

The IGDA Student SIG also manages the IGDA Academic Chapter program, which are student-run, school clubs that are officially associated with the IGDA.

The core of our community exists on discord. Click here to join our discord server. To stay up to date with all of our events, sign up to our mailing list.

"Ask Me Anything" Events - Industry Speaker Series

Every week, we try to have at least two industry speakers who are willing to talk to students. These events follow the popular Ask Me Anything (AMA) format, where the discussion is driven by students' questions about the speaker's career, projects, and more.

Academic Chapters

Are you thinking of starting a game development club at your college or university? Or are you already part of a cool club but have trouble connecting with professionals in the games industry? Then you should consider joining the IGDA Academic Chapter program.

Academic Chapters are local, student-run communities that have become officially affiliated with the IGDA. The Student SIG works closely with academic chapter leaders to help them run better local communities, and to help connect them to the broader international community within the IGDA. Academic chapters will also find that it's much easier to catch the interest of industry professionals when they work under the IGDA name.
