University of Nebraska – Omaha (UNO) was founded in 1908. The school serves 17,905 students enrolled in more than 200 programs of study through six colleges. The College of Information Science & Technology offers a BS in Computer Science (BS in CS) with a Concentration in Game Programming that “provides students with the basic concepts involved in the video game development process,” says the school.
Required courses for the program give the student an “introductory knowledge of both 2D and 3D game programming, as well as resource management, concepts of designing games, and general graphics theory.” Electives allow the student to “focus on a particular aspect of game development: game design, game/player interaction, game programming, or graphics.” Course highlights include Advanced Game Programming, Computer Graphics, Algorithms for Robotics, Video Game Design, Game Design as Art, Computer Generated Imagery, and User Experience Design.
A Senior Project and internship opportunities are also part of the program.
