Simulation and Digital Entertainment Concentration, Information Systems Technology, A.A.S.


The Simulation and Digital Entertainment (SDE) concentration provides students with the skills to design and develop computer games, detailed simulations and interactive technologies. Program concentration may be chosen from three 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 all three options transfer to the University of Baltimore.
