Overview

Key Features

In the Interactive Media and Game Development program of Worcester Polytechnic Institute, faculty and students alike share a passion for finding new ways of looking at traditional media in order to create new media. Beginning on your first days on campus, you’ll be pushing boundaries and making things that matter to you, whether that’s games, interactive fiction, art installations, collaborative performances, or virtual environments.

Our program provides an outstanding interdisciplinary education in the principles of interactive applications and computer-based game development. While each student chooses to focus on either the artistic or technical side of the field, all gain a broad understanding of both, developing a base of knowledge in computer science, mathematics, science, art, music, and English.
