Programming software for today’s gamers requires a deep understanding of computer science, advanced mathematics, and physics. During DigiPen's Game Programming four-week program, students will get to experience what life is like for DigiPen college students who are working to complete their Bachelor of Science in Computer Science.
Pre-College students in this track will take three (3) core academic classes plus the Game Project Lab that involves students from all of the Pre-College tracks to work together to complete a game.
- CS: Applied Computer Science for Games
- MAT: Applied Math for Games (with Lab)
- PHY: Applied Physics for Games (with Lab)
- GAM: Game Project Lab
Students receive grades for their Pre-College classes, plus a final transcript that can be included in their college applications. Any student who successfully completes the Pre-College Program and matriculates to DigiPen Institute of Technology within three years can receive a credit equal to the Pre-College Program tuition to apply toward their first-semester tuition as a freshman.
