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.

Great program. I applied 4 years after graduating from a graphic design program. Application process was straightforward and asked for short video answering what my favourite movie was and why but I think they recently added a video submission, so get your reel together. Since graduating I've worked on sets in Toronto and done freelance ad content for a few different agencies.

I took the IA course as a continuing education course; it could have been so much better. We had to submit group work, group work is rarely very rewarding or "fun." The course was not very well structured. We submitted homework every week for the duration of 6 weeks, no one received a grade or a review on the homework submitted...ever. The final homework assignment was submitted and once again, zero feedback regarding grading or comments on how anyone taking this course could improve? The instructor, Darren was MIA when you emailed him for information, no response to emails. No feedback on our final assignment. Everyone in the group received the same mark regardless of the individual's participation. I would not recommend this course.
