    Hay. Id just like to say thanks for all the advice in this forum it is by far the most informative game development forum i have ever seen.

    I’m currently in W.I.T doing multimedia. I’m hoping to get a degree then specalise with a postgrad in game development, while still building up a portfollio. Then im going to try head to america to work out there. Hopefully.

    My question is, is my course relevant for the industry. it wasnt listed in the courses section of your site and other Multimedia were.

    I’m not sure what the difference between my course and the rest is. But if my course isn’t relevent or just rubish i’d like to know. All opinion are welcome.

    Thanks.

    It’s probably not in the courses section because it hasn’t been submitted by someone. If it’s similar to others then send it in to GD.ie and it could be added. I’m not sure about the specific requirements for being listed.

    Do you think you’re on a good course? What you’re learning is all that really matters – not what others think.

    had a look at the subjects, some useful ones there. Although i think if you want to program, you’ll probably need to do more in your spare time or possibly do a masters at a later stage.

    it is hard to keep up with new courses and we do depend on people to send us in course outlines and others from the courses to let us know what they are like. If you want to get a staff member to send us in a course outline we will gladly add it if modules etc. look relevant.

    Cheers guys. Thanks for the replys.

    I think the course is good but i feel it moving a little to slow. Some of the subjects are a little too easy but were tought Java in programming class and the Maths covers all the Matrix Vecor and Trig topics.

    Well i’ll try send get the course outline as soon as possible.

    Thanks again

    Hey JME just last week we had another student from your course on here talking about games and he seemed to be happy enough with where he was headed.

    Look back throught the forum, find him and drop him a pm. If you get yourselves into some sort of organised group perhaps you’ll be able to get more out of your course

    Good luck

    Look at the bright side. You have a better chance of getting a 1.1!
