Return to All Programs of Study by Degree Type (AS, AA, AAS, CAS, CTS) Return to: All Programs of Study by Degree Type (AS, AA, AAS, CAS, CTS)

This program is designed to prepare students for entry into the field of software programming and game development.  It provides students with a foundation in Java, windows programming, and mobile application programming.  Game Development includes game theory, game programming, and a course in virtual/augmented reality. It should be noted that game platforms and technologies are often used in other non-gaming applications.  Both the areas of programming and game development complement each other in terms of problem solving, programming, software analysis, software development, and practical applications. These skills are demanded by the software development community and this program is designed to meet those demands.  Upon completion of this program, students will:

  • Program  Java SE applications;
  • Program Windows applications;
  • Program Android mobile applications;
  • Have a foundation Game Design Theory; and
  • Program 2D and 3D games.

Note:


Students starting in fall of 2017 will take CSCI 132 , Basic Datastructures and Algorithms, in the fall of 2018 and the new CSCI 232 , Data Structures and Algorithms, in spring of 2019.  Java II will be removed from the sequence.
