Software Engineering

Recommended Posts

If I would like to have a career in Game Development (either a Game Designer or Programmer), is it a must to a degree in either Software Engineering or Computer Science? Seeing that Math isnt my strong suit, I would not fair to well in either of the previous fields since, they both require a high level of mathematics. Also, what other fields are involved with game creation portion of Game Development that can be a career field? Thanks, Any help is appreciated

Getting a job as a programmer requires a degree in computer science. There isn't much way around that.

Read this, it will do you some good. Read it carefully, including the portion that begins: "Will I be able to get into the game industry if I study ..."

Note that that's not strictly true - my degree is in maths, and plenty of people have jobs in related subjects. Not that that helps the OP, if maths isn't his strong point, but just thought I'd clarify.

If you can show practical skill and talent sometimes a degree isn't necessary but more and more companies are having degrees in Computer Science or equivalent as a requirment.
