Computer Game Design and Development BS / Software Engineering MS

Career and Academic Opportunities:

Computer Game Design and Development graduates typically work in more creatively-driven jobs, such as media art and graphics. They also use their software engineering knowledge to work in programming and computing careers. Combining the Bachelor of Science in Computer Game Design and Development with the Master of Science in Software Engineering will allow graduates to apply for higher rank jobs in the multimedia and gaming industry, but also to move in other domains. Indeed, software engineers can find employment in almost any industry.

Software engineering is synonymous with innovation, new programming tools lead to inexplicable dilemmas that demand professionals with cutting-edge knowledge and skills to solve them.

The accelerated pathway will also help students getting their graduate degrees faster and, thus, entering the job market sooner.
