Bachelor of Science in Game Development




What will I learn?

AUM's Game Development degree program is intended for students interested in computer science and computer graphics. Throughout the program, students work with the latest software as well as hardware technology in the industry. Covering all of the steps starting from conceptual planning to finished product, students will acquire a comprehensive knowledge of not only the development, but also the business models typically implemented in the industry.

Program Learning Outcomes

Game development is not a stand-alone program; rather, it is made up of intersecting, complementary disciplines. Students will be exposed to:

a) software engineering
b) computer graphics
c) artificial intelligence

d) animation
e) software architecture
f) networking

Covering both emerging trends and proven knowledge, the program's content is always relevant and current. This "best of both worlds" combination allows students to understand the connection between realized applied systems and issues they'll likely face professionally in years to come.
