  • The Game Development and Design (GDAD) Program is an interdisciplinary undergraduate certificate program between the departments of Arts and Entertainment Technologies, Computer Science, and Radio-Television-Film. The program produces graduates ready to design, develop, and provide leadership for the exploding growth in game, mobile app, and creative media agencies and studios in Texas and around the world. Participating students individually build their pertinent skills within their respective degree programs, then come together to collaboratively develop 2D and 3D games for mobile, online, and AR/VR platforms in the program's culminating experience: the Capstone Course. Working alongside local organizations, such as UT's EGaDS! and IGDA Austin, and local game and mobile studios and industry professionals who are committed to evaluating student portfolios and hiring successful graduates, the GDAD Program is dedicated to graduating creative and talented students in the practices of digital interactive, immersive media and game development.
