UOIT provides a 21st century learning environment with laptops for every student and access to high-end gaming computers for programming tasks. We teach students a broad range of new media skills so they can pursue careers as game designers, project managers, simulation specialists, and within human factors, technical marketing and advertising.
The Games and Media Entertainment Research Lab (GAMER Lab) is a state-of-the-art research laboratory available to the Serious Games, Stereovision & Robotics, and HCI + Game Science research groups with grad students working on serious games, human factors, simulation, games for fitness and health, applied game design, augmented reality, stereovision gaming, and affective computing.
Within the UOIT game development program we are looking for the next generation of game development entrepreneurs that will change the face of gaming itself. The program has a high workload, but our top students graduate with an excellent work ethic and a broad knowledge base in game development, qualifying them for many different positions in the games industry.
