Games Design & Art

Here at SNC, we aim to supply our students with all of the knowledge and skills required to work within the Games industry. These courses offer a wide range of learning opportunities, including functionality for games, creating visuals, and even sound. Our courses are designed to not only teach our students the skills for the profession they are pursuing; but also prepare students for life after college, either through self-employment or higher education.

We aim to support their expectations of being in the industry, utilizing work experience provided by video game companies and ensuring that our students are in the loop with industry trends, organizing events such as Games Jams and trips to video game conventions such as EGX.

Build your career in the
Games Industry

Our courses utilize the most up-to-date practices within the Games industry, and we are one of the few institutes that have access to Z-brush and Motion capture.
The structure of each course is collaborative and reflects practices carried out in the industry itself, so alongside game design, you will also have a chance to work with other areas (such as music) if desired.
