2017: Everend game wins national Intel contest


We are living in the 'Digital Age.' Computer programs continue to permeate every aspect of our lives. Every industry uses computers and requires professionals that have skills in computer science. Individuals depend on computing for everyday activities from social networking to entertainment. This is the future. Do you want to be a part of it?

Modern games are among the most demanding of computer programming applications, requiring knowledge of advanced mathematics and physics which form the basis of the 3D graphics, artificial intelligence and game engines that make up the game programs. To be successful in the industry, you must be skilled in computer science and be able to work in teams to create games. The Game Design and Development concentration curriculum is based on a firm foundation of both computer science and math. Students will apply their skills in the three capstone advanced project courses. These courses simulate industry by creating games using a team environment.

Mobile device use is exploding. New data storage, processing and display technologies have allowed tablets and other portable devices to do nearly anything that had previously been done with larger personal computers. The number of smartphone users in the world is expected to reach 2.6 billion by 2019. The Mobile Applications concentration curriculum is designed to apply your computer science and math foundational skills to create apps for devices that use graphics and touch screens to connect to the internet and other external devices such as car entertainment systems, as well as interface with integrated cameras, digital media players, phone and GPS systems.
