Diploma of Digital and Interactive Games

National ID: ICT50215 | State ID: AVZ4

 

Do you want to become an interactive games developer?

When you complete the Diploma of Digital and Interactive Games you will be an attractive applicant for IT roles such as games developer, 2-D/3-D digital artist, and interactive digital media developer.

You will gain the career enhancing knowledge and skills to combine 3-D components, create and animate 3-D characters, create collaborative game environments, and manage the production of interactive media. You will acquire valuable experience in current industry standards, managing projects, and with workplace health and safety.

It is expected that students entering Diploma level studies have the knowledge and/or experience equivalent to that gained in completing the relevant certificate IV course. The course builds on existing skills and does not "start from the beginning".

Fast Track: Students who meet the entrance requirements for the Diploma, but who may need to build lower level skills, may complete the Certificate IV foundation skill set. This skill set consists of only the essential units from the Certificate IV, done over one term, which then leads into a three term Diploma. Ask us about this exciting option.

The Centre for IT Excellence (CITE) provides state of the art, industry relevant training in information technology, creative media and electronics. We provide pathways from foundation studies to advanced diploma with specialist training in cyber security, systems and programming.
