Video Game Development explores the many facets of the video game development life-cycle: from asset creation to game design to coding. Students will learn to code in an industry-standard programming language, create their own 2D & 3D graphics, explore game design as part of a project team and combine these elements to create games using a professional game engine.
With crossover credit options available, this could be the first step on the path to a career in computer science. Innovative students can return for a second year of self-driven studies, earning more credits by applying their skills in advanced software development areas. Students must have successfully completed the first year of study and shown evidence of being an independent worker.
