Games Design & Art

Here at SNC we cover a variety of different skills required to be within the Games industry so, there is a skill set for everyone. There are options to learn  functionality for games, creating visuals for games and even sound.  

All the courses in our area not only teach our students the skills for the profession they are pursuing but we also prepare our students for life after college whether it be through self employment or higher education.

We also aim to support their expectations of being in the industry through work experience provided by video game companies. 

We like to make sure that our students are in the loop with the industry trends by organising such events as Games Jams and trips to video game conventions such as EGX.
