Digital Game and Simulation Design Certificate

 Provides students with a thorough understanding of techniques for designing advanced 3D games and simulations. Courses will cover 2D and 3D graphics, animation, character development, texturing, rigging, scripting and game setup using state-of-the-art software development tools.

Completing students will have developed the skills necessary to create sophisticated 3D graphics and a simple application that can be used for games and simulations.

This workforce certificate program assumes that students entering this program possess math and writing skills necessary for the program’s course-work. Students entering the program will take a placement test, and may be required to take developmental course-work in the areas if indicated by the placement tests.
