Participants will conceive and develop prototype games in small teams, with access to modern game development tools and talks and guidance from the mentors of the award-winning MIT Game Lab. The class welcomes registrants from any industry or professional background with a software engineering component, though the course itself is not programming-heavy.
For the past three years, the MIT Game Lab has been ranked in the The Princeton Review's top 10 for game design. "Game Development for Software Engineers" marks its expansion into professional education. The course is formally offered under the auspices of MIT Professional Education, which provides a gateway to renowned MIT research, knowledge and expertise for those engaged in science and technology worldwide, through advanced education programs designed for working professionals.
