About the Program
The specialization in Game Production provides training in principles and techniques used in the production of interactive 2D and 3D games. Students will have the opportunity to learn game testing, game design, programming and scripting languages, modeling and animation skills, level and world editors and game engines used to design and develop games, and will examine market research and business concepts related to game production and distribution processes.
Project management, creative design, teamwork and communication skills are integrated throughout this dynamic curriculum to prepare students for entry level positions in the game production industry. It is recommended that students consider this program as an entry point to continued higher education rather than as a terminal degree. Students should consider transfer plans with universities that offer Bachelor of Applied Science and/or Bachelor of Applied Technology degrees.
About the Program Coordinator: Julie Hoshizaki
(Statement from a student)
Julie was there to greet me day one of me starting my degree at Northwest Vista College. Every day since she has been there for me and many others. She was there to teach me cool new things, praise work I had done, and tell me I was only doing the minimum and being a slacker when she had to. She passed me when I earned it, failed me when I deserved it, and overall was one of the best teachers I have ever had. Without Julie Hoshizaki I would not be in the place I am today, and I plan on putting her in every "Special Thanks" of every game I ever make!!!!
