Artistic Vision Meets Technological Know-How
Students who choose to study Interactive Media & Game Development (IMGD) at WPI learn in an environment that fosters a deep appreciation of both the artistic and technical aspects of IMGD--while focusing on developing in-depth skills in either the artistic or technical domain.
Our faculty’s goal is to produce well-rounded grounded graduates by helping artists learn enough programming to be able to appreciate the challenges programmers face, and to help programmers become versed in the language of art so they can collaborate with their artistic colleagues.
Learn by Doing
Computer games may well be the most easily recognizable form of interactive media, but the IMGD program also offers digital whiteboard presentations, distributed virtual environments, and performance-based media. Game development involves all aspects of creating games--design, content creation, programming, testing, and project management.
Our program will challenge you to be creative, explore, collaborate, and push beyond boundaries to create entirely forms of new media that haven’t even been imagined yet.
Build a Portfolio
A key component of the IMGD program at WPI includes building a portfolio of unique works that will help give you a competitive edge as you pursue the career of your dreams.
