What is GameDev at MSU?
The Game Design and Development Program at Michigan State University was founded back in 2005, and has grown leaps and bounds into a Top 10 Ranked program by the Princeton Review. Our program involves a mix of disciplines and backgrounds, comprised of Designers, Artists and Programmers.
Get Involved with GameDev at MSU
We are currently seeking industry partnerships to strengthen the game program through:
- Collaborative projects – MI 498 Collaborative Game Design is a capstone experience for students in the program where they will work over a semester on a game project in a team setting with an external, industry-based client. The typical project usually involves developing a small-scoped game project from start to (near) completion, developing a prototype of a larger-scope game, or adding a feature to a current game title. Projects can also be more experimental/exploratory in nature.
- Internships opportunities – internships are strongly encouraged for students in the program; we have students trained in game programming, art, design, and production and are always looking for industry partnerships to help place talented students.
- Guest lecturers and instructors – we like to bring ing both academic and industry experts into our curriculum through both guest lectures in existing courses and through special topics courses. The format and duration of the special topics courses are flexible. Some are weekend workshops.
If you are in industry and interested in forming a partnership with us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
