Bachelor of Science in Entertainment and Multimedia Computing
Entertainment and Multimedia Computing (BS EMC) (Blended only) is the study and use of concepts, principles, and techniques of computing in the design and development of multimedia products and solutions. It includes various applications such as in science, entertainment, education, simulations and advertising.
The program enables the students to be knowledgeable of the whole pipeline of Game Development. The students will acquire the independence and creative competencies to articulate project design and requirements of new project, not necessarily based on standard templates.
One of the fields of specialization in EMC is Game Development. Game Development is the study and application of fundamental and advance theories in game design, scientific simulations, use and development of gaming technology and tools, and production of commercially acceptable digital games and viable solutions for use in entertainment and scientific applications. The objective of Game Development is to prepare the student to be game development professionals with specialized knowledge, competencies and values in designing, developing, and producing digital games and / or tools, and in managing game development projects for various applications.
The following are specific professions/careers/occupations or trades that graduate may pursue after satisfactory completing all the requirements leading to the degree of BS EMC Specialized in Game Development:
