Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT) and the Limerick School of Art and Design (LSAD) are pleased to announce the launch of a new Bachelor of Science (Honours) Degree in Game Art and Design. This programme will run on the LIT Clonmel campus where it will compliment our current suite of digital programmes including Digital Animation Production and Creative multimedia.
The first of its kind in the country, this honours degree programme has been created to address the need for creative graduates who possess a unique blend of artistic and technological skills. This will support the continued growth and success of the games industry both nationally and internationally. The programme aims to develop graduates who can create high quality game content, design game levels and work with industry leading content creation tools, scripting languages and games engines.
The programme has been welcomed by key Game industry stakeholders both nationally and internationally and it addresses key recommendations of the 2011 Forfas report “The Games Sector in Ireland: An Action plan for Growth”.
World renowned Game Designer Brenda Romero, who recently visited LIT Clonmel for two days as part of a Fullbright Fellowship to Ireland, assisted in the design of this new programme.
“A unique aspect of this Bachelor of Science programme from a national perspective is that all applicants must present a portfolio of relevant work. This will ensure that entrants to the programme have an aptitude and interest in the field of Game Art and Design”.
– Andrew Crotty, programme leader of the B.Sc in Game Art and Design
We are very excited to announce our first student intake for September 2015 at our Clonmel campus.
