This course was previously titled ‘Bachelor of Creative Technologies (Game Art)’. The name has recently changed as the result of continuous course review in order to optimise student experience and ensure employability, industry relevance, and high academic standards. The name change more accurately describes the course content and industry outcomes (artist, designer and developer) that result from it. While the learning outcomes remain the same, we’ve improved minor aspects of the course based on invaluable industry and student feedback as part of our continuous improvement process.
Become part of one of the biggest industries in the world! If you love games and want to create breathtaking environments and characters, then Game Design and Development is for you. The Bachelor of Game Design and Development will develop your artistic style and technical skills through learning traditional and contemporary art practices and using industry standard software. You will create imaginative and original characters and use these assets to develop immersive experiences in an industry that is bigger than the music and movie sectors put together! As well, you will collaborate with other game designers and programmers to develop an industry-level game.
