The Video Game Design Club is a student organization composed primarily of programmers, artists, and designers interested in pursuing a career in the multimedia and video game industry.
The club provides members an opportunity to produce interactive video games with other students who share their passion for video game development. Through weekly meetings and special events, members gain the tools necessary to prepare for employment in an increasingly competitive industry. Throughout the school year members attend workshops, game development competitions, studio tours, professional panel discussions, and the annual Game Developer’s Conference in San Francisco. By the time they graduate, members have already had the experience of developing multiple video games either as solo projects or on a team.
Members are encouraged to create portfolios highlighting their work that they can present to potential employers. Members are provided many opportunities to meet with such employers by attending weekly video game industry networking events as well as monthly events hosted by the International Game Developers Association. The club is often contacted with internship opportunities which are posted online for interested members.
The Video Game Design Club gives students the skills required to compete in the current job market and prepares them to be successful in their careers.
