Overview

Centennial College’s Game – Programming (Fast Track) program will grant you direct admission into the second year (third semester) of this three-year offering to receive an advanced diploma in four semesters if you’re a qualified college or university graduate with a software background.

Whether you’re passionate about the classics or the latest games, you’ll take game programming courses that will teach you to participate in several game development phases, including game design, three-dimensional graphics programming, simulation design and multiplayer online game programming.

This School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science advanced diploma program will emphasize:

  • Object-oriented software design methodologies
  • User-oriented interface design
  • Software testing
  • QA
  • C#
  • Java
  • Advanced graphics
  • Web game programming
  • HTML5/JavaScript
  • Unity3D
  • Mobile application development

In addition to obtaining theoretical knowledge, you’ll complete two software development projects. To be successful in these “real world” games/simulations/applications, you’ll be required to utilize all the technical and business skills acquired during your studies to build high-quality software.

Once you complete the program, you’ll be prepared to work as a software developer in the gaming industry. Who knew those years of video games would count as resume experience?

Co-op Option

The co-op option will allow you to gain hands-on experience while you complete two co-op work terms as an employee in the field. This experience not only allows you to put classroom learning into practice but will also provide valuable contacts for your future career.

To participate in this co-op option, you must complete an application process in the first semester. If academically qualified, you may be admitted to the co-op program.

When you graduate, your diploma will highlight the co-op credential.
