Simulation and Game Programming

The Simulation and Game Programming awards prepare you for a wide variety of careers in video game design and testing, television and film production, medical and scientific simulation, industrial animation and training, aeronautic and transportation industries, architecture and landscape design simulations, forensics, engineering simulations, education, government, and much more.

Learn modern game programming languages, game prototyping, game design, game production, game maintenance, iOS development, APIs and libraries, operations analysis, and critical thinking. Program Coordinator Dr. Bruce Gooch has published more than 50 research papers on computer graphics and is the author of the first book on non-photorealistic rendering. Gooch and his students have started 21 companies, including four that have generated multi-million-dollar revenues.
