Exciting New Course! Simulation & Game Design
12/8/2006 If you can imagine it, you can design it.
That’s the magic of the new course in simulation and game design at Pensacola Junior College that starts in January.
Students can now earn an associate’s degree in computer programming and analysis that opens the door to the video game industry.
“With this program, we’ve become the third community college in the state to offer students an opportunity to break into this exciting and growing industry,” said Rich Cacace, professor of computer science at PJC. “We have great plans for expanding the degree in the future. I see it becoming an interdisciplinary degree, with art, math, English, behavioral and physical science all playing important roles.”
Simulation and game design is a relatively new degree program that is being implemented in colleges and universities worldwide.
The computer and video game industry is the economic sector involved with the development, marketing and sale of video and computer games. It encompasses dozens of job disciplines and employs thousands of people in the United States. The video game industry alone took in $31 billion in 2004.
