The Entertainment Arts and Engineering Master Games Studio (EAE:MGS) is truly a unique academic program. We’ve brought together the College of Engineering, the College of Fine Arts, and top industry professionals to create a one-of-a-kind learning experience in game development.
Students enrolled in the Master’s of Entertainment Arts & Engineering (MEAE) program are typically interested in pursuing a career in interactive entertainment, and our program is built around this goal. Not only do we offer students a world-class education from a leading research university, but we also offer the opportunity to develop and enhance a professional game portfolio, and a chance at an internship in the game industry.
Applications for the MEAE program typically open in November and the deadline is usually at the end of January.
The EAE:MGS program operates during fall and spring semesters over two consecutive years in a cohort model where the students remain together throughout the entire program. All students in each of the tracks have a series of common classes including game design, rapid prototyping, pre-production, and final project. The students also have courses that focus on the specialty of each of the tracks. Each track also has a concentrated set of electives to choose from.
