This program prepares 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 in demand 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 mobile applications;
  • Understand foundation game design theory; and
  • Program 2D and 3D games.
