Whether it’s online or console, cellphone or PC-based, the game industry in Canada is large and growing rapidly. Game developers and publishers in the Greater Toronto Area range from small specialized units to mid-sized companies to Microsoft, Nintendo and other industry leaders.

Computer and game programmers are the fundamental resource for companies that develop, produce, distribute and market computer-based games.

Students in George Brown’s three-year Game – Programming advanced diploma program will learn the technical skills they need to be successful in the job market by learning “the language of gaming” (C and C++), as well as artificial intelligence, 3D graphics and much more.

The added advantage of this program is that students will also be taught by George Brown’s School of Design faculty throughout the program, working closely with design students to create games, explore all aspects of the game industry and learn to work in teams, just as they will in industry.

What You’ll Learn

  • Analyze the differences in game genres in order to develop games that meet the needs of specific markets.
  • Analyze the history of video games to compare various approaches to game development.
  • Support the development of games by identifying and relating concepts from a range of industry roles – programming, design and art.
  • Contribute as an individual and a member of a game development team to the effective completion of a game development project.
  • Develop strategies for ongoing personal and professional development to enhance work performance in the games industry.
  • Perform all work in compliance with relevant statutes, regulations, legislation, industry standards and codes of ethics.

This program is all hands-on all the time. The lessons and strategies I learned in the classroom helped prepare me for the exact challenges I faced in the classroom. Instructors were dedicated and empathetic. Best of all, there were more available field placements than there were students. Early childhood educators can't go wrong at George Brown in my opinion.

I had to adapt during a hard year of learning online at GB. I'm better at studying and learning and I had to practice discipline but I got a lot of support this year from teachers and support staff. The staff were doing their best. I just want to say thanks for that as an international student in Brazil. I'm hoping to see everyone in downtown Toronto next year!
