East Greenwich, RI - New England Institute of Technology’s (NEIT) Rocket League esports team competed in the National Esports Collegiate Conference (NECC) finals on December 4, 2022, in Worcester, MA and won the NECC Rocket League Title in the Emergents Atlantic Division by defeating Assumption University (Worcester, MA) 4-0. NEIT’s esports program is relatively new, which makes the December 4th win especially important since it represents the team’s first playoff victory, first trophy, and the first invitation to a national competition which will be held in the spring.
I consider myself fortunate to have been given the opportunity to work with MassDigi in their semester-based studio program. Through the help of RIDigi and the dedicated faculty at New England Institute of Technology I was given a path to further my journey to a career in the video game industry. The team from MassDigi is quite informed, offering a well-planned out remote program.
