Program Details
Game Design and Esports (Q75A)
Computer Science & Technology

Game design emphasizes game programming within a core computing education to prepare students for careers in the game, simulation, modeling, training, and visualization industries. The emphasis on computing fundamentals gives students more career options. In game design, game designers think of a concept, flesh out the idea, and create the framework for the initial game. Esports entails playing and watching a professional sporting event instead of watching a physical event, spectators watch video gamers compete against each other. All students become experts in games they are experts in and learn new games for competition. You will also be introduced to coding and earn certifications.
