ITT Technical Institute offers a Bachelor's Degree in Digital Entertainment and Game Design. At ITT Tech Green Bay, our teaching staff is comprised of qualified and experienced artists, designers and programmers. During the first two years you will learn the basics of 3D Modeling, Animation, and Programming. During the last 1.5 years you will learn how to use these fundamentals to design and produce a game. In addition to our bachelor's degree, our students will all graduate with a finished game under their belt. Annually ITT hosts a game fair event in which the students have the opportunity to compete for prizes and show off what they have been developing all year.
Students will work together on teams on various projects. On the production team you will be assigned a "job role" which means you can focus on your favorite area of development whither that be art, modeling, design, sound, or programming. All of these disciplines are crucial to game development. At ITT Tech - GB we cover each of them.
In our DEGD program we expose the students to different opportunities in the game design field. Historically we focus on simulating the AAA development environment in hopes that our students can enter this thriving job market. To help nurture this community, we bring in veteran developers from AAA development studios. Additionally we are expanding into mobile devices, web based 2D flash games and short story animations. There is always something new going on in our program. The industry is changing and so must we. Our newest toy in the department is a render farm created in-house by our own techno geeks. With this tool we are able to aid the students in rendering animations.
The local student IGDA chapter forum and website is: www.newwavegamedev.com. This site is for the students to post to forums on the topics in the game design field that are affecting them. Additionally you will also see workshops announced on the main page and tutorials published on Unreal III and Gears of War. These workshops and tutorials are meant to supplement student learning.
Do you want to learn from a pro but do not wish to pay the exoberant rent prices of Seattle or Florida? Consider ITT Tech Green Bay, we offer a pro-developer environment in an incredibly cheap place to live.
