  • Game Development - Advanced Programming provides the specialized skills and knowledge that a programmer would need to enter the rapidly growing industries of entertainment or educational game development or the emerging 'serious games' industry of training and simulation software.  Students will receive an in-depth study of what programmers on project technical teams do: graphic effects, animation systems, artificial intelligence, physical modelling, sound, and scripting systems.  Custom game engine and game components will be created, combined with the use, configuration, and customization of current commercial game engines and components.  Other aspects, such as game models, simulation, performance and configuration of both single-player and multi-player games will be explored and implemented.

    It is anticipated that graduates will find employment in the game programming industry at an entry-level position.  Upon graduation, each student will have assembled a portfolio of game fragments and demonstrations, including a larger prototype game designed along with a team of other students in other disciplines.
