What Students Learn

Our Game Design courses teach students how to create their own video games. They’ll design levels, characters, and full games using tools such as the Unreal or Unity game engines. VR Game Programming helps students expand their creativity to design their own virtual world with the same products as the professionals! Students will spend the week learning how to use Unity to construct virtual environments or augmented experiences. You’ll be able to use your games and applications on your mobile phone, using mobile VR viewers like Google Cardboard. VR projects can also easily be enabled to work on headsets like the Oculus Rift.
