Return to Programs and Courses Return to: Programs and Courses

The Game Programming specialization prepares students for entry-level positions in the video game industry using the principles and techniques of interactive game programming and software development. Students will learn various programming and scripting languages, data structures, game and software testing, game design, and game engine operation. Project management, creative design, teamwork and communication skills are integrated throughout this dynamic curriculum to prepare students to work on a creative team in the video game industry. Graduates of this program have advanced training in programming languages including Java and C++.  These skills can be applied across industries which rely on software development and computer programming.

Because the Game and Programming work environments demand highly advanced skills, it is recommended that students consider this program as an entry point to continued higher education rather than as a terminal degree. Students should consider transfer plans with universities that offer Bachelors of Applied Science and/or Bachelors of Applied Technology Degrees.
