WHERE THIS CAN TAKE YOU

Game Programmer

Game Programmers work at the heart of the game development process. They design and write the computer code that runs and controls the game, incorporating and adapting any ready-made code libraries and writing custom code as required. They test the code and fix bugs, and also develop customised tools for use by other members of the development team.

Game Designer

Game designers are an important part of a comprehensive team of designers and developers that coordinate the complex task of creating a new video game. Game designers have duties like designing characters, levels, puzzles, art and animation. They may also write code, using various computer programming languages.

HEAR FROM SOME OF OUR STUDENTS

game programming course

"It’s your career success that matters."

I applied to some companies with my updated reel and get the chance to be hired by a small studio named Dwarf-Labs where I did some animations for a CG commercial. Then I was hired by Ubisoft where I worked for the last release of one of their big franchise, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate!"

CG Spectrum has been an instrumental part of my growth as an animator, helping me sharpen my skills, acquire new ones and strengthen my character animation abilities. This is an invaluable experience for anyone looking to learn animation or take their skills to the next level.
