The Edmonton Digital Arts College (EDAC) is a private post-secondary school in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada offering full-time professional diploma programs in the creative digital arts disciplines.
The Edmonton Digital Arts College is proud to be an Edmonton Made business. When the college first opened in 2002, as Guru Digital Arts College, the founders were all key members of the burgeoning digital media community in the city. In 2008, another Edmontonian, Owen Brierley, took the helm and began to develop the school as the art school that uses technology that it is today.
We are a mentor-based learning environment where the faculty joins the students on their learning path and guides them to develop their professional practice.
We walk with you along your own growth path and offer coaching to guide you.
Intense. Unique. Experience.
Students at EDAC build a foundation of skills based on industry best practices. They develop their professional practice in a studio setting and enter the digital media industries ready for the cultural and work demands of their chosen discipline.
“Best 10 months of my life!”
