Are you a problem solver by nature? Do you marvel at the inner workings of complex systems? Whether you’ve already dabbled in programming languages or you don’t know the difference between an “if statement” and a “while loop,” DigiPen’s computer science programs provide a number of paths for students interested in starting a career in software engineering or video game development.
These degree programs share a common set of ideas and curricula. Each begins with an introduction to the world of math and computer programming. The assignments you complete and the code you write will quickly grow in scope and complexity, but through daily practice, you may surprise even yourself with the pace at which you are learning and progressing.
DigiPen’s rigorous flagship degree program provides a foundation in the math and computer science of games and graphical simulations, making this an excellent program for aspiring game and software developers.
This program covers a wide range of important computer science topics — such as networks, compilers, and parallel programming — and their modern-day applications. You’ll also have the opportunity to apply your knowledge towards team-based software engineering projects.
In this program, you’ll study software engineering and learn to develop digital audio systems for video games and interactive media. You’ll also learn about studio recording techniques, sound design, and music theory.
DigiPen’s newest degree program teaches you how to develop software that can process, analyze, and make sense of data input. As a graduate of the program, you will be well-versed in data science and software engineering — prepared to tackle real-world problems with machine learning solutions.
For students and professionals with a prior degree, DigiPen’s Master of Science in Computer Science program further advances your knowledge of 3D computer graphics, artificial intelligence, and advanced algorithms.
