About this Program

The Game Programming diploma is designed to prepare graduates to successfully compete for high-paying, rewarding careers in IT fields with the highest demand, both today and in the future. The program requirements were determined through consultation with employers, those working in the industry, technical training professionals, and those currently seeking training and retraining for IT careers.

The Game Programming diploma focuses on designing, developing, and deploying computer programs and games. Students learn animation skills and programming techniques suitable for developing elementary interactive computer games.

Graduates will be encouraged to take advantage of access to corporate recruitment and IT recruiting firms. Internships and work-study positions will also be available. The IT graduate will be highly employable - in many cases, even before graduation.

This unique program allows technical specialization in one option while the common core courses and required electives from other options build a broad IT foundation needed to understand the terminology and methodologies of other IT specialties in the workplace.
