Investigating an interest in educational video games Justin Filippou found a topic not only for his honours year but also further study.
The best thing about the honours program was being able to independently research a topic that I was very interested in.
“The Bachelor of Business (Honours) allowed me to use my technical and business skills to figure out how video games could be used to improve tertiary education.”
Like many people his age Justin says he finds video games very engaging and enjoys playing them. Combining these games with education has, he believes, had mixed results in the past and he was curious to investigate why.
He said he chose RMIT because of its reputation for producing quality graduates that are ready to face the real world challenges of IT and business.
