Game Design Program Ranked Third
March 25, 2010
Our Digital Media's gaming program is ranked 3rd on the list of the 50 best undergraduate gaming programs in the U.S. and Canada by The Princeton Review . The Princeton Review developed its "Top 50 Undergraduate Game Design Programs" list – the first project of its kind – in partnership with GamePro, one of the most respected magazines reporting on the video game industry. Video game design at Drexel happens at the RePlay lab under the leadership of Digital Media's Dr. Paul Diefenbach and Dr. Frank Lee of the College of Engineering's Computer Science Department. Digital Media students learn gaming design, art, 3D modeling and animation, scripting and programming, storytelling and digital audio. Computer Science students learn the logic and organization of game engine programming and asset pipeline integration. Students in both majors take gaming courses together and work on multi-discipline team projects with Music, Scriptwriting and Engineering majors.
