Following the development of game related modules in the final year of the computer science degree last year (see under courses on gd.ie) DIT is hoping to offer a full games stream to third and fourth year students of their computer science degree from this Autumn, subject to validation. If this goes ahead it will be the first computer science degree with a specialisation in games in the Dublin area.
In addition DIT are hoping to host the cgames conference in early November 06. For more details on this conference, which has a strong focus on artificial intelligence, have a look at the conference website from last year at http://www.scit.wlv.ac.uk/~cm1822/cgames05.htm
Hope they involve some web designers in the organisation of the conference!!
More as soon as things are confirmed.
