The Master of Science in Computer Science (Game Development) program graduates students with a strong foundation in computer science, an engineering-oriented game development core, and a focus in key areas of game development, such as infrastructure, cognition and games, immersion, serious games, etc. Immediately upon graduation, students will be capable of engineering next generation games and simulations and their required technologies for the entertainment and serious game industry. Additionally, graduates from this program will be able to further their education in graduate programs in game development and computer science. A long term goal of this M.S. degree is to establish research and development directions that create a science of games and an accompanying literature archive that improves game development for both serious and entertainment purposes.
