  • The Game Design Initiative at Cornell University (GDIAC) is a group of students, faculty, alumni, and community members who are devoted to the establishment of game design as an academic discipline in its own right. While operated through the Department of Computer Science, it is an interdisciplinary program allowing students from different fields of study to learn to work together in the development of computer games.

    GDIAC offers three formal courses in game design and development, which constitute the core of a Minor in Game Design offered by the College of Engineering and College of Computing & Information Sciences. Any Cornell student may take the Minor as part of their degree program regardless of their college.
