In the first semester, students will go over the essentials of their chosen field, whether that is Game Design, Concept Art, or 3D Art. Gradually the students will elevate their skills and see how they fit in the complete picture through their Production Skills classes. The 4th semester is a Game Lab – everyone comes together to create a real video game. At the end of their studies, each participant in the program will have a strong portfolio to share and get their first job in game development.
