Game Design and Development Program

Bachelors of Science - Game Design and Development Program

Interdisciplinary Skill Set
Combining the skills of video production, graphic design, interactive design, 3D skills and programming, this interdisciplinary degree program prepares the student for the exciting world of game design and development. Crossing the boundaries of traditional game programs, the Game Design and Development Program combines both the programming and design aspects of creating video games for major platforms, consoles, and mobile devices, virtualization for medical, educational, and military applications, as well as the next round of interactive applications.
Your Quest
Gaming is becoming integrated into how we learn, socialize, interact, and gather information. Its designing the interactions a user makes when using an interface. Its simulations for real world practice without consequence.
Change the stigma attached to "Gaming" - Or Stop Playing Around
The 'Gaming Skill Set' is a well rounded individual capable of managing a project from inception to completion, understanding of video and audio techniques, designing interfaces and user experiences, creating environments that reflect real world scenarios or create new worlds to explore, programming complex levels with physics, logic and purpose, and measure users progress through those scenarios.
Whether its for entertainment, education, or training purposes, (maybe it's all three!) you'll be in control of your career. At the end of the program, you'll have examples of products created entirely by you, as well as in a team environment.

'Lvl your career'
The curriculum is designed to balance the programming and design skills needed to understand the industry pipeline of product creation. The projects will provide the users the tools to improve reaction time, improved hand eye coordination, think strategically, process cause and effect, and increase ability to process multiple stimuli. Students will gain an understanding of every aspect of the gaming industry - from concept development to character and environment creation to programming user interfaces and 'guts' of a game to marketing their products to project management.

One of these could be you: Concept / Storyboard Artists, Character Artists & Animators, Level Designers, Texture Artists, Programmers, Interface Designers, Sound / Audio, or Professional Testers.
To be employed here: Corporate web designers, programmers, support staff roles, production studios, corporate communications teams, design firms, advertising agencies, art directors, creative directors, project coordinators, producers, directors, designers, etc.
