You wouldn't need to be a computer wizz to be a designer. Not all games have to be computer games, nor be technically complex. Although if you intended to design hardcore digital games, I would assume a knowledge of a computer capabilities, some basic IT skills and experience with industry standard software packages would be desirable.

I don't know about ITT-T but alot of courses where I am have taught us from scratch; working upward from a strong common foundation.

As far as Mac vs PC, etc. From a user perspective, most systems are fundamentally similar. A word processor is still a word processor no matter which system you use. Both are straightforward to learn and use - so I wouldn't worry about it.

Hope this helps!

also It tends that audio work is done mostly on macs because of their better memory management. Sometimes the digital art is too but modeling and the like is a PC thing
