Do you ever imagine about what kind of video or computer game you’d like to create? With the Game Development certificate, you can realize your dream of having a career as a professional game developer.

Fanshawe’s program will give you valuable preparation with classes that train you to do what programmers on project technical teams do: physical modelling, sound, and scripting systems. As well, you’ll have access to cutting-edge technology that allows you to create your own custom game engines and game components.

You’ll also learn the specialized skills knowledge that a programmer needs to know in order to succeed in the fast-paced, rapidly growing industries of entertainment or educational game development. If you are interested in how games can improve the lives of the people who play them, you can also focus on the emerging ‘serious games’ industry of training and simulation software. When you graduate, you will have developed skills that are highly marketable and transferable, and you will also have the flexibility of working as a Senior Programmer, Game Programmer, or C++ Programmer, or in another area of software development.

What You’ll Learn

  • Design, develop, and present a working game design document for a marketable game or game component.
  • Create prototype games and game fragments through the development and use of various software components, along with the use and integration of existing commercial tools and components.
  • Evaluate different types of games and game platforms and select the appropriate ones for a particular game strategy.
  • Using innovative techniques – including digital, verbal and written – present the game design documentation and prototype(s).
  • Manage the design, production, deployment, and maintenance of game prototypes, fragments, and components.
  • Use applicable programming and mathematical skills to appropriately and correctly implement the various mathematical, simulation, artificial intelligence, graphics, sound, and other aspects of a game or game component.
  • Identify, choose, and implement appropriate design and programmatic techniques (algorithmic, threading models, rendering, etc.).

As a university graduate, the Advanced Filmmaking program at Fanshawe was an incredibly welcome change of pace. It’s allowed me to focus on the hands-on aspect of filmmaking that I did not have the chance to learn while in University. The shift from reading theories and essay writing to producing content and connecting with my fellow filmmakers was exactly what I needed.

The environment of AFM is a lot more intimate than the university experience. You are always working in groups to create projects and receiving constant feedback from the professors. If you want to learn the ins and outs making a film, and meet the people who are going to help you do it, there is no better place to go than Fanshawe’s Advanced Filmmaking program.

I did film at Fanshawe and it delivered what it promised. Some of my instructors were awesome while others were so-so. I grew up in London and stayed close to home but realized after I was in the program that there are other schools in Toronto that have a better reputation. Also people talk about Fanshawe's "slacker vibe", but you don't have to fall into that trap. You can find slackers at every school. In the end, I have a stable job in my field and I live in Toronto. So no regrets, but make sure you put in the work and start networking from Day One.
