Overview

In our day, especially with the developments in the mobile platforms and internet technologies, computer games have become rather prevalent in our country, as they are across the world, and have turned into a popular media consumed by wide masses without differentiation across gender or age.

Education

The Digital Game Design Undergraduate Program at BAU established under the Faculty of Communication, with its interdisciplinary approach does not only unite the software, art and design domains, but offers an interdisciplinary working environment across our university and the Faculties of Engineering and Education in particular. Students, who will come together in foundation classes in their freshman year, will take their first steps towards specialization in their sophomore year by selecting one of the software and art verticals under the roof of design according to their talents. 

Students’ routes will once again intersect in the project classes, where they will transform into game teams and produce together with the consultancy of our academic staff. Local and international internships practiced through the COOP system within the scope of our university, which brings students together with the business world during their student lives, and the BUG sectoral communications network, enhances students’ experiences and updates their knowledgebase.
