If you want to be part of the exciting and expanding industry of gaming, we want to help you gain the skills to stand apart from them all.
In a matter of months, you’ll learn the key fundamentals in game development.
At SAE you won’t find yourself in a lecture with 300 people or even in a traditional lecture at all, you’ll be in a studio environment using industry-standard software. Your growth and development will be assessed through the completion of industry-based projects, not theoretical based essays.
In preparation for an industry that commands agility and adaptability, you’ll cut your creative teeth on projects in partnership with your course peers. You’ll work in a team to pitch, design, plan and deliver a game in response to a brief. Your project will extend on your design and scripting skills sets, to allow you to craft a broader range of gameplay systems and features.
To compliment your technical skills, you will graduate with employability skills, introductory project management skills and scholarly techniques for higher education.
Upon completion you will be eligible for up to 80 credit points towards either the Bachelor of Games Development (Game Design) or Bachelor of Games Development (Game Programming).
The Diploma of Game Development has a strong practical focus, underpinned by key theoretical components. The course content is informed by our strong links to industry and our 40-year history in designing and teaching creative media courses.
