O que eu aprenderei?

Game programming is a multi-billion dollar industry that is among the fastest growing in the world. The video game industry is in need of trained programmers who can produce optimized and efficient code for computers, game consoles, web pages, cell phones and other devices. If you are creative and like to control the action, Game - Programming is for you.

Program content introduces you to fundamental game concepts including introductory computer programming in C++, C#, scripting languages, web development, and database storage techniques. You will learn mathematical calculations for advanced programming techniques required for sophisticated graphics, A.I. (artificial intelligence) and networked multiplayer games. You will broaden your knowledge by examining and implementing 3-dimensional games using industry standard libraries and game engines. Portability, modularity and efficiency of code is emphasized at all stages of instruction in addition to proper documentation and team communications.

Graduates of the Game Programming program develop a sound background in software design methodology and programming.


Students focus on C++ and C# programming languages throughout the full 2-year program acquiring skills the industries demand. Students study Network Programming, Artificial Intelligence, Graphics Programming and a leading Game Engine. In the Final semester, students form teams to complete a final culmination project where they develop and release games to a professional market using industry project management software and development environments.
