Overview

Bachelor of Information Technology (Honours) - Game Development

The Game Development and Interactive Media program is designed to provide students with a wide range of game design development and interactive media expertise

Students are immersed in the game development process from day one and develop complete video games beginning in their first year. 

Successful students develop their knowledge and skills in a diverse team environment and learn to work effectively with programmers, artists, and designers to create innovative products that push the medium to its limits. 

Each semester, students participate in the Game Development Workshop (GDW) that integrates knowledge in all disciplines in a back-to-back semester-long team project to design/develop/extend/polish an interactive game. 

Students work in multidisciplinary teams to apply their specific discipline developing and delivering a game at the end of each year.

Ontario Tech University's state-of-the-art Game Development lab features state-of-the-art and emerging technologies allowing students to explore new and exciting ideas in their projects. 

The lab contains exciting technologies such as Virtual Reality headsets, 3D scanners, Volumetric/Motion capture facilities, an audiometric sound recording booth, and the latest in interaction devices to provide students with real-world experience using technologies that they would not have access to otherwise. 

Students have opportunities to acquire business and management knowledge and develop entrepreneurial skills through the core and elective business courses, allowing graduates to quickly advance their careers in the game industry as employees or entrepreneurs in charge of developing and managing their own gaming businesses. 

Throughout years two to four of the program, students can choose to focus on the disciplines that interest them the most and gain valuable depth of knowledge in development disciplines such as (but not limited to) Game Programming, Game Design, Technical Art, Serious Games and Simulations, and Game User Research.
