Langara’s Advanced Game Technology program is designed to provide you with all the skills needed to pursue a career in programming for video games. You will be given a full introduction to all aspects of the game development process, after which you will dive into the amazing depths of the technology behind video games. This program is designed for students with a background in programming and will prepare them to move into a career as a programmer in the interactive entertainment or simulation industries.

Students in the Advanced Game Technology program will develop a portfolio uniquely tailored toward their desired career path in the games industry. This program provides students with specialization skills not typically found prior to entering industry. Students will gain a solid and practical understanding of how to effectively work with specialists in order to realize their project’s development. To this end, students will have the opportunity to collaborate with student artists in other programs to help bring their games to life. Throughout this intense and focused process, students will be given the opportunity to identify and enhance their strengths and interests, which in turn enables them to enter the workforce with a narrowed focus and competitive edge.

What You’ll Learn

  • Utilize industry standard engines such as Unity and Unreal to create games. Students will work on game logic, AI behaviour, and general game flow.
  • Extend industry standard engines such as Unity and Unreal by creating custom tools, exploring rendering pipelines, and developing plugins.
  • Become experts at using C#, C++ and Python to create games, extend engines, and build tools/plugins.
  • Create custom real-time networking solutions for video games.
  • Create asynchronous networking solutions and backend data services for video games.
  • Build an engine from the ground up, using low level languages and rendering techniques.
  • Develop games for PC, Console, Mobile, and the latest XR technologies to create state-of-the-art experiences.
  • Collaborate with design and art students from other programs, working on team-based projects to create full games.

The Nursing program at Langara exposed me to multiple aspects of nursing. With support and encouragement from my instructors and colleagues I was able to pursue my dream of working in public health. Langara assisted me with the tools I needed to excel in the fascinating and ever changing world of public health.

The Langara difference is the community and the friendships that you build with your classmates and instructors. Students work together to become successful and competent professionals. Instructors are accessible and invested in the students; they love nursing and this is evident in the lessons they impart in class. I always felt supported.
