    Sounds like a fun class/program. I've taken/will be taking computer science related courses myself. Good stuff :) Wish there were some game related courses at my college though.

    i will be graduating with my bachelor's degree in Management Information Systems at the end of this year and will be looking for a position in the gaming industry.  Mostly ive learned stuff like database, MS Project, project management, and CASE tools like systems architect.  I'm hoping that with some of this knowledge i can get my foot in the door.

    I'm sure, you can! You spent a lot of time for you education it bears fruit...Next step for successful job it's your resume, thinking about it.I'm sure, you can! You spend a lot of time for you education it bears fruit...Next step for successful job it's your resume, thinking about it.
    If you need some help with your dissertation, you always can use https://www.brillassignment.co.uk/ . I think it's more comfortable than writing alone. I can recomend it, even if you alreaady finished your study, they can help with resume. It's the most important when you look for job.

    I think it is a bit late but not entirely.

    You should grab the free Unreal UDK or Unity or GODOT there are several and mess around with it so you can learn the basics of how the whole idea comes together.There are other programs as well that gaming uses like Blender.You have to do some homework and then at least familiarize yourself with all the programs so you'll have a better understanding of what your learning.

    If you just walk in blind,everything is going to fly over your head,it will be very difficult.IMO if your program is too easy to understand they are likely not preparing you well enough to get into the field.

    Basically you needed to already have a long time interest in the field and not just "i like gaming,so this would be cool".

    Many people know that a university is a more serious educational institution than a college. So if you choose between college courses and university courses, you must of course choose university courses. my personal experience tells me that the courses at the university are better. Once upon a time I wanted to learn how to write dissertations, term papers, diploma papers and other complex papers. At first I went to college courses and I didn’t like it there because the teachers had no practical experience but only taught us theoretical materials that we ourselves can read in books. While on the course at the university, the teachers actually practiced what they told us. Most of the teachers worked for such services as the service from which students buy cheap paper online from BuyPaperCheap. That is why, by example, I want to tell you that the difference in teaching at the university and in college can be significant. So if you want to get something more than you can get from the materials that are already on the Internet, then I advise you to go to college courses.

    Hard course ?........ Sounds like a hard life !

    Sounds like a job that you'll be looking for work every two years.  Be asked to move across the country every time you find work and relocating your family.  Like the location or not, you will go where they tell you.  

    UNSTABLE pay checks if you get paid at all....... Do you know how much health care is if you have to pay out of pocket, every job you will have to re-evaluate it. Most will not provide. 

    LONG HOURS that are possibly un-paid, with the promise of hitting it big that may never come.  Asked to buy your own equipment if work at home in an ever-changing technology. 

    COMPETITION in a fierce market filled with un-fair hiring no matter how well you excel. You better get established quickly and maintain it forever, much like pro sports....... You will be walking into back fill positions where people are leaving do to bad working conditions.

    STRESS every time your out of work, your reputation will diminish deeper no matter how good you are. If jumping from state to state (if in the USA), you may not be able to clam state benefits.


    BAD IDEA !!!
