WPI offers a master of science in Interactive Media & Game Development (IMGD), which focuses on designing immersive, interactive environments.
Whether you’re a college graduate looking to further your education in interactive media, a game industry professional interested in a leadership role, or a professional from another field retooling for the game industry, earning a graduate degree in IMGD will enable you to pursue a diverse range of careers—as a producer, a designer, a teacher, or a project leader in such specific subfields as technology, art, or design.
As an IMGD graduate student, you get to choose your own areas of research and thesis. WPI’s courses provide a base knowledge relevant to the design of interactive media. You select courses from technical, serious games or management focus areas that allow you to tailor the degree to suit your individual interests and career goals. By designing, developing, and evaluating a substantial group project or by working on a thesis with a novel scholarship as a capstone experience, IMGD graduate students become qualified for the career of their dreams.
