Interactive Design and Game Development Concentration, Information Systems Technology, A.A.S.


The Interactive Design and Game Development concentration provides students with the skills to design and develop computer games, detailed simulations and interactive technologies. Program concentration may be chosen from two separate tracks. Choosing from one of the tracks allows students to specialize in an area that is most beneficial. Course concentration is on game design, virtual modeling, animation, interactive application creation, programming, documentation, structured design principles, problem solving, and business ethics. Classes are conducted in hands-on labs. Credits from both options transfer to the University of Baltimore.
