Enter the realm of game design, discovering how to design characters, levels and environments, model 3D assets and use storytelling to make engaging content and games.
Build on your design skills and use advanced logic and work on problem solving activities using the same professional equipment, contemporary software, and processes your favourite games have been designed with to develop interactive games.
Begin the transition to a career in game design as we provide students with regular opportunities to connect with industry and get noticed! We’ve hosted some of the biggest names on campus and online at our industry events - MasterTalks, Games Mastermind and Industry Speaker Series.
Gain exposure to the full spectrum of games development so you know how to make games from start to finish. Learn how to create game play mechanics, design and animate 2D environments and characters, master the art of 3D asset production and integration with games, build-in interactivity, then learn programming techniques to bring it all to life.
You will be introduced to game theory, genre, history and context. You will research and report on the nature of the game industry and analyse the mechanics of game design.
Learn how to record, process, and implement a variety of sounds in different contexts, as well as how to apply sound design principles to enhance communication, meaning, and emotion in your work.
Acquire fundamental knowledge of game programming languages, understanding data types and how to manipulate them with functions and variables using those languages, and an understanding of scripting game logic.
Develop advanced techniques and practical skills in 3D asset creation for games programming, building on previous learning in the process of 3D sculpting to create high-quality details and contours in objects and characters.
The principles of animation will be applied to 3D characters, props, accessories and background assets, using advanced 3D industry standard software.
Learn scripting techniques, artificial intelligence, games programming for controllers, optimisation, and console development.
Bring 3D models to life, utilising the fundamental theories and practises of animation rigging to create a skeleton for organic and hard surface models.
Work on multiplayer game technologies to enable interaction in real time between players. Working within a game engine, you will learn about areas concerned with networking, interpolation and synchronisation.
These three exclusive industry preparation programs are designed to immerse you in real-world training that will help you land the career of your dreams.
A rigorous 2-subject program where you’ll work as part of a production team to conceptualise and produce your own game - which you’ll then pitch to an industry panel for feedback & recognition.
Gain the soft skills you need to land your dream gig and excel in your career - from portfolio development to resume creation, interview techniques and personal branding.
Undertake an internship as part of your course - giving you valuable on-the-job experience and a network of meaningful contacts.
Develop the skills and master the tools needed to create award-winning Games from scratch with Australia’s most comprehensive Higher Education Bachelor program that covers all aspects of game development - just like some of AIT's recent graduates:
Since graduating, Jack has quickly moved up at the ranks to become a Senior Developer at Red Cartel. He leads a team of artists and programmers working on cutting-edge games and projects such as Shell’s VPower Virtual Reality Pitt Stop.
Whilst studying, Alex landed an internship at Red Cartel where he honed his skills in 3D design & Animation which allowed him to work across all aspects of game dev. Alex then launched his own game development studio - BigfootDS.
Gabriella is a Unity Game Developer at Chaos Theory Games - a role which has seen her contribute to the award-winning game ‘Bleached Az’ which took out Best Serious Game at the AGDA's in 2019.
