  • PROGRAM OVERVIEW

    At triOS College, the Video Game Design and Development program offers curriculum designed to support a team approach to game development.  This team environment is a ‘must have’ in the gaming industry. Game creation requires a combination of skills, including programming, scripting, game level planning, and sound design.  Our program content provides courses that support all of these skills.  Students will have the opportunity to learn, think and respond within a team, by alternating in each varying role.

     

    Portfolio development is also an important part of our program.  A well-developed portfolio is a must for employment interviews.  Students will complete 8 gaming projects while enrolled in the program: a game prototype, a C++ game, an advanced Flash/ActionScript game, an XNA game, a DirectX game, a Unity Game, and two mobile games that will contribute to their portfolios.

     

    ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

    High School Graduation Diploma or Mature Student Status (18 years of age and high school equivalency test passed). In addition, a two part entrance examination must be successfully passed.
