Game design is about harnessing creativity and building entire worlds for players to express themselves. There are few professions as in-demand as video game designers, and London, Ontario is at the centre of this vibrant and growing industry. In the Video Game Design and Development program, you’ll study at the new, state-of-the-art Centre for Digital and Performance Arts in Downtown London, surrounded by leading gaming and tech industry firms. These innovators will mentor you and critique you. They’ll show you how to get in and how to get ahead. This intensive three-year advanced diploma will focus on the tools and techniques you’ll need to find an entry-level position as a concept artist, animator, level and game designer. You’ll develop your 2D and 3D skills by studying art and design theory, modelling, animation, texturing, anatomy and drawing. You’ll then build on these basics for an understanding of the video game as a whole. At every step of the way, designers, animators, producers and art directors in the video game industry will make sure you know how your skills will be used in the real world.
