Your coursework will address the underlying scientific concepts from computer science and related fields:

  • simulation and modeling
  • graphics
  • artificial intelligence
  • real-time processing
  • game theory

Faculty in the Computer & Information Science department will introduce you to the art and design principles required to develop usable and engaging games, including software engineering, human/computer interaction, and thematic structure. Graphic design, choreography, music/sound effects, and game aesthetics are also explored. You’ll learn how to create the components that facilitate:

  • game detection
  • human-computer interaction
  • network framework
  • artificial intelligence waypoint systems

Ultimately, you’ll be ready to unite all that you’ve learned into one eloquent package: a computer game. You will be prepared for a promising career in the computer game design industry.

For the concentration in computer game design, you’ll complete 29 to 31 credits.
