School of Computing Undergraduate Gaming Emphasis Ranked No. 2
March 31, 2015
The University of Utah’s School of Computing undergraduate computer science degree with an emphasis in video game design ranked No. 2 in the nation, according to the new 2015 rankings by Princeton Review.
As an interdisciplinary program between the College of Engineering and the College of Fine Arts, students from both disciplines work closely in the field of video game design and development. Through these collaborations, students receive an interactive education that prepares them to work effectively in a team environment, an invaluable skill in the video game industry. A quarter of the current undergraduates in the School of Computing are involved in the EAE emphasis.
"Four years ago, I was a chimney sweep in Iowa who loved to play video games,” said Kyle Kern, a student in the program. “Now, I make video games that people love to play. The EAE program has allowed me to learn the technical, design, and interpersonal skills necessary to succeed in the games industry.”
