For the second consecutive year, the Digital Game Research Center at NCSU has made The Princeton Review “Top Schools for Video Game Design Study.”

NCSU was listed among the top 50 undergraduate programs. It also was ranked in 2011. The list has been published three times. 

Programs were reviewed based on more than 50 questions about academic requirements, faculty credentials and graduates’ employment and career achievements. 

“It’s a reflection of the strong academic programs we have in games here at NCSU and of the impact that our graduates are having at leading games companies like Epic Games, Red Storm Entertainment and many others,” said Dr. R. Michael Young, an associate professor of computer science and co-director of the Digital Game Research Center.

“NC State has a unique program that blends games courses taught in world-class engineering and design colleges. Instructors work with North Carolina games industry leaders like Electronic Arts, Zynga, Microsoft Game Studios and many others to ground class work in real-world practices.”
