Game Design Courses

Kick start your career in digital media with AIT’s industry focussed game design courses!

The game industry is worth more than $100 billion globally, and continues to expand each year. Gaming now extends far beyond PS3 and Xbox as it encompasses indie games, mobile device games, educational games and more. The movie Avatar took a whole year to make $1billion in sales, GTA5 took just three days. Games have quickly become the dominant sector of the entertainment world, and this sophisticated and competitive field has plenty of opportunities for a rewarding career. If you’re an aspiring interface designer, 3D artist or simply want to redefine interactive storytelling, there’s never been a better time to get on board.

Developed in consultation with industry experts, our courses cover the latest in design thinking as well as teaching you the necessary skills for advanced game development. Explore a range of narrative elements, including graphics, animation, storytelling and scriptwriting, and apply them to the creation of interactive media.

Work within the broader context of fields such as web design and film, increasing your general knowledge and career crossover potential. Learn programming techniques from industry leaders, combine practical knowledge with imagination and discover the limitless possibilities of the digital world.

We will ensure you are professionally qualified to work in the games industry, and our student advisors will support you with job placement options when you graduate. Whether you’re interested in building expansive fantasy worlds, designing the next addictive phone app or applying gamification techniques to educational software, this is the field for you.

Careers in Game Design

Has there been a bigger shift in the way we consume a form of media than what’s happened with games over the past decade? No longer confined to overclocked PCs or consoles, games are everywhere – and everyone plays them.

Even free titles on iPhones are big business, pulling in major advertising dollars and IAPs. That means the companies behind hits like Candy Crush Saga have plenty of money to invest in the next generation of game developers, chasing the next big hit.
