Through our unique curriculum and an internship at Ubisoft, our students will have the opportunity to exercise their learning in a practical and hands-on manner. This integration will thoroughly prepare our students for their future career in game design.
This year covers the visual fundamentals that will be essential for the future game artists and game designers. The focus is on creativity, and artistic expression.

GAMEPLAY & CONCEPTS
An important year of transition, students learn about the basic techniques of designing a game, conceptually and visually. This second year aims at strengthening their gaming knowledge as well as teaching them the basic tools of the Game Art. Important techniques of 2D and 3D production, as well as game engine principles are taught all year long. Before the second semester students get to choose a specialisation on Characters, Concept Art or Environment Art & additional specialised classes in their chosen field will also be given. At the end of this year, we expect the student to have a basic knowledge of the technical tools and to understand the specialisation chosen and the career opportunities implied by this choice.

During this 1st internship, students will understand the structure of a studio; who does what, who leads, how the teams are organised and how their members interact. They will also apply what they’ve learnt in class to the "real" world, and adjust their skills to the needs of the project. On-the-job learning is to be expected along with continuous practice. A monthly evaluation will help them discover their specialisation or area of interest; they will have to feed a blog on a weekly basis and submit a final internship report at the end of the 3 months.
Professional Game Design
Going further into their specialisations, students master their technical skills, building on previous years, and are introduced to the soft skills and production processes required by the industry, as well as upcoming technologies. Through projects that involve teamwork and strategic completion of cross-functional projects, students transform into industry ready game artists and designers.
