Advanced Diploma of Screen & Media (Game Development)
What is Game Development?
Game Development is the process by which games are produced. It involves a combination of different media - from audio, video, film, graphics, animation, storytelling, script writing, databases to programming. The games industry is a sophisticated and booming industry worth an estimated $40 billion globally, with Australian game exports worth about $150 million per year. It is expected that growth in the games industry will be the largest in the entertainment industry. Given the evolution of games technologies, the demand for talented multimedia and games professionals have increased exponentially. Game developers with their advanced level of digital media skills, could pursue a career in most digital media professions.
AIT`s unique Game Development program offers students comprehensive skills in advanced 3d modelling and animation, motion graphics, games design and production.
