Computer Science – Video Game 设计

学者 / School of Science, Technology and Health / Computer Science – Video Game 设计


Imagine creating a passion, like the one you feel when gaming, for a new generation of gamers. As the video game industry continuously grows, so do opportunities for those who understand both the creative and technical sides of the industry. 在博彩平台推荐的电子游戏设计课程, you’ll gain a breadth of knowledge in design, 动画, 平面艺术 and computer programming – all valuable skills that will make you a player in the dynamic game design industry.

TU’s video game design program will provide you with the skills you need to successfully work in the games industry as a programmer, designer or producer. You’ll gain a broad base of experience, allowing you to find success either at larger firms or with smaller developers – the latter of which is of tremendous contemporary relevance, 游戏开发中的许多新工作都来自中小型工作室.

在过去5年里,独立游戏开发出现了巨大的增长, 因为手机游戏越来越受欢迎, 以及Unity等现成游戏引擎的普及. The video game design field is an offshoot of software development and so fits in nicely with our program as well as our software development concentration. 然而, 电子游戏设计缩小了范围,专注于游戏产业, which is growing globally and exponentially.

In the video game design program, you’ll learn by doing, 当你将游戏设计理念与实践相结合时. Most of our classes are hands-on, where you’ll actively work on projects based on in-class learning. 您将使用与行业中使用的相同的设备和软件. You’ll participate in a 150-hour professional internship, gaining valuable industry experience. 通过实地考察,你将亲眼看到这个行业的工作情况. 和, you’ll hear from accomplished IT professionals, who visit our campus to speak on current topics.

Bringing Knowledge to Practice
  • In game design classes, you’ll engage in project-based learning, working with real equipment and software.
  • In your second-to-last course of the program, CST460 Research in Computer Science, you’ll focus on a project through the term, 涵盖所有领域的课程,并将知识付诸实践.
  • 在最后的过程中, CST470实习, you’ll work professionally within an 组织 for a minimum of 150 hours gaining practical experience and learning what life is like working in the industry.
  • Hands-on IT projects working with the local community are at times incorporated into course work.
  • Clubs and 组织s – such as the Tiffin University ACM (Association of Computing Machinery) Student Chapter, 或者我们称之为技术俱乐部——提供对现实世界学习的见解.

“当涉及到新事物时,任何人的头脑中都会有一点怀疑. But for me, I think proving people, who said I couldn’t do it, wrong is my biggest motivation. 对我来说再也没有什么是不可能的了. The world is constantly changing and I feel like 我是 much more capable of adapting to those changes now compared to when I was walking on to TU’s campus for the first time.”
