Game Design attracting both artists and engineers to the industry
Dr. Vered Pnueli, Head of the Kadar Games Center at Shenkar College, spoke to CTech about what gaming means to young students
“Everyone is a gamer now...I think I’ve been teaching video games for so many years now, and I can see the sparkle in people's eyes,” said Dr. Vered Pnueli, Head of the Kadar Games Center at Shenkar College. “It allows you to be someone else for a minute. It allows you to be yourself in the shoes of someone else. It is an extension of yourself. This is something that is very attractive to everyone.”
The Kedar Gaming Center gives academic credits to students who want to study and earn a Masters in Game Design. Currently, it has 100 students who demonstrate both mathematic and artistic talents, learning how to balance creative concepts with engineering to build games for players around the world.
“I am looking now at students and many students are looking for a combination of the physical world and the virtual world,” she continued. “They don’t want to be immersed only in the digital world, and I think this is going to be part of the future of gaming.”
