Computer, mobile, and console games represent a multi-billion dollars global industry. Game Application and Technology (GAT) Program offers dedicated degrees in game development giving students the technical expertise they need to enter the industry confidently.
GAT Program is designed specifically by Computer Science of BINUS UNIVERSITY to provide students with knowledge and skills to develop and create a variety of applied technology in the field of game technology. BINUS UNIVERSITY found this Program in September 2012, and it became one of the best programs under the coordination of School of Computer Science. In collaboration with several renowned game industries, GAT Program always makes continuous improvement in our curriculum, human resources, and facilities. The GAT Laboratory, equipped with high specification computers and dedicated audio editing studio, will facilitate the students and lecturers to collaborate and deliver high-quality games.
GAT Program is designed to adapt the dynamically changing creative industries landscape while ensuring a solid academic foundation and aligned to industry expectations. GAT focuses on game art, game design, and game programming. Derived from Computer Science Study Program, GAT Program offers game programming and development blended with creativity and innovation in Game Technology. The program will not only focus on the game development for entertainment tools, but also for other purposes (e.g. serious games for learning and training, and gamification tool to a non-game application to enhance its user’s motivations and engagements). The structure of the course allows students to gain valuable practical experience in building software systems, and also apply knowledge in creative game design. GAT Program has a strong base in computer science foundation subjects as well as offering the theoretical and critical thinking behind current digital technologies. Students will learn in a project-orientated environment that encourages collaboration with industries. This collaboration helps them discover creative solutions to contemporary design challenges. Students are encouraged to collaborate, work according to deadlines, maintain attendance levels and develop strong communication skills. As a result, graduates are internationally renowned for their expertise and confident to enter the workplace as newly skilled professionals rather than technicians.
