Game Development

Introduction

Game development requires a new breed of digital professionals. Though the industry is still growing in the Philippines, the multi-billion dollar industry's demand for talent continues to out strip supply. Students in this new career will learn to make simple games from online all the way to consoles and mobile such as the iPhone. This discipline also has non entertainment applications such as architecture, e-learning, and science simulations. Not to mention, CIIT’s curriculum is developed and backed up by the largest game development firm in the Philippines, Anino Playlab.
