In Topic: Is there a Game Programming school that you would suggest?

23 June 2013 - 01:28 PM

Sorry for busting in but.. CS is Computer Science ? So basically a simple IT/Informatics degree ? If that's the case, i dunno what's going on around in the world but in germany the "Informatik" courses have almost no programming involved in them.. Though i've noticed Media Informatics containing quite a lot of programming and just a bit of media stuff in it. So i'm really confused about what to pick.

 

Would this course be any good / accepted by a company ? http://www.fontysvenlo.nl/pages/en/courses/bachelor/software-engineering.php (Check structure and content)

 

I am also wishing to become a game programmer in the future and i'm struggling to find a suitable University/ course for that, and instead of creating yet another topic i decided to join this one.

Thanks for your replies! So after University and learning programming there for example, i'd have to learn on coding for games specifically after that as well, or can i just go and get a job straight away ? Or learning at the job as you go?

 

Please read this forum's FAQs.

 

Checked them, eighter i missed it or there's no answer to my specific question. No offense, but isn't it easier for both of us to respond with a "yes" or "no" instead of just "Please read this forum's FAQs." ?

 

No, it's not. It's better for information seekers to first actively seek before asking others to tell them answers. 

 

Since you have read the FAQs (especially FAQ 27) you should know that it's rare to get a job right after graduation. After graduation you most likely need to spend time making a portfolio, and building up your basic knowledge into useful game creating skills, before you are an attractive enough candidate to hire.

 

sorry, how should have i known that "Barrier-Busting Tips -- Sloperama FAQ #27" had the info i needed ? People wont read absolutely everything when all they need is one answer, as much as you'd want that.

But yeah, thanks for the answer!

Hm yeah, all of that makes sense.. As i said i'll probably start off with C# And then move onto C++ ^^
