This session will provide key information from how the University of Central Florida's Undergraduate Games and Interactive Media program is structured and why. How this supports student outcomes and what the future looks like for the program. UCF is the second largest school in the USA with over 70,000 undergraduates. The GaIM program is ranked in the top 15 by the Princeton Review. All of the students participate in the full production process of making video games from design and production planning to developing final art and code. The session will also explain how potential employers can engage with graduates.
