Our Program

Humber’s Game Programming diploma program is project driven and focuses on programming and game engines for the purpose of game development. You will work on team projects using programming tools to develop, test and maintain game applications through the practice of theories of usability, information architecture, network architecture and industry standards of practice. Throughout your study, you will have access to peers in related programs like Visual & Digital Art and Animation – 3D which will allow engaged students participating in collaborative work the opportunity to build assets for use in the game development you are undertaking as a programmer. You will graduate with a significant Captstone project showcasing your programming talents, and a skill set that combines high levels of mathematics, physics and visualization within this field of computer programming. Knowledge of game engines, familiarity with key aspects of 3D modelling, game scripting and technical direction will allow you to compete in this rapidly growing field of game development.
