Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LEARNING - Janita Singh

GAMING is a pop­u­lar hobby, and as the in­dus­try con­tin­ues to grow, so too does the demand for em­ploy­ees.

A Di­ploma of Dig­i­tal and In­ter­ac­tive Games from TAFE can help give you the skills to get a foot in the door.

Teacher Sein Wai Chew says gaming is an ex­cit­ing, grow­ing and multi-bil­lion dol­lar in­dus­try with great ca­reer prospects.

This course helps stu­dents de­velop a range of skills in­clud­ing video game de­sign, sto­ry­board­ing, ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence in gaming, char­ac­ter de­sign, script­ing and pro­gram­ming.

Stu­dents learn how to de­velop dig­i­tal games briefs in­de­pen­dently and as part of a team which will hold them in good steed for the in­dus­try.

They can get the op­por­tu­nity to work in new and emerg­ing ar­eas such as game de­vel­op­ment for mo­bile de­vices, on­line and TV. Fu­ture jobs could also in­clude pro­gram­ming and web de­sign. tafe­ or
