  • The Gaming and Simulation Development program at Tyler Junior College gives students basic skills to enter the electronic game and computer simulation industry. The development of electronic games and simulations is serious business: industry revenues currently rival those of the motion picture industry. This industry requires skilled, creative people in a wide variety of specialties. The program at TJC prepares graduates for entry specifically in the areas of programming and graphic design.  Although each of these areas has its own course of study, the two tracks often cooperate in the development of a game or simulation. A career in game development is a respected, highly prized profession on the cutting edge of a rapidly evolving, multi-billion dollar industry.
