The Computer Simulation and Gaming (CSG) program in the Tandy School of Computer Science at the University of Tulsa, provides students with a hands-on, project-based, leading-edge curricular that combines the multiple disciplines of computer science, art, music, film, and storytelling. Throughout their studies, CSG students will develop skills for game programming, 3D graphics, animation, 2D & 3D level design, game mechanics, and gameplay.
The CSG undergraduate program provides majors with two options:
CSG Design option features courses in graphics, 3d modeling, and animation. Students in this option receive both a minor in Computer Science and Art.
CSG Development option features courses in developing game engines and provides students with both a minor in Computer Science and Mathematics.
While different, both options offer the same core CSG courses to students. The CSG program is interdisciplinary by nature providing students with a mix of both design and development skills. Students graduating with a degree in CSG will have mastered the skillset to develop a fully functional game/simulation independently or as part of a fully-fledged team.
