Study Games at SAE



Make the transition from gamer to a game developer, exploring a range of genres for a range of platforms - roleplaying games, platformers, adventure, PC, FPS, mobile, and VR.

At SAE you won't find yourself in a lecture with 300 people or even in a traditional lecture at all. You'll be in a studio environment using industry-standard software like Unreal Engine 4, Unity3D, Autodesk 3D Studio Max and Maya, developing for technologies such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Android, and iOS. You'll also learn to speak how the professionals do with expert lecturers guiding you in industry-standard languages C++ and C#.

Your growth and development will be assessed through the completion of industry-based projects, not theoretical based essays. This will ultimately help you build up a body of work and a portfolio to share with potential employers or first clients.
