Game Design and Development

Starting school year 2009-2010, the DLS-CSB School of Management and Information Technology (SMIT) will begin offering the Philippines' first Bachelor of Science in Information Technology (BS-IT) program that specializes in Game Design and Development (GDD). The program is grounded on a combination of IT and animation concepts, and focuses on developing original content that will showcase Filipino ingenuity and meet the standards of the local and global game development industry.

The new program covers eleven trimesters and will feature courses in video game programming, game art and animation, game design and game production. Students will also be trained to become part of the booming game development industry as entrepreneurs that can establish game development studios that will make a difference in the Philippine and global game development industry.


The School of Design and Arts (SDA) will also begin offering a Bachelor of Science in Architecture (BSA) program this first trimester of May to Sept 2009. CHED approved the program offering on Feb. 20, 2009.
