PUBLISHED STUDENT GAMES
All students in our undergraduate and graduate degree programs publish a game before graduating. Students work in interdisciplinary teams from pitch to publish, so that they have experienced the entire game development process before entering the industry, making them valuable new hires. Students own all intellectual property rights to the games they publish, which allows them to further develop their projects after graduation. Check out some of the games our students have published!
