Serious Games and Simulations Lab
In addition to a bachelor’s degree, UHCL offers a lab in which students develop serious games and simulations, leading to a final capstone experience, a multi-faceted academic and intellectual project. Students involved in this lab won a prestigious award in 2018, in partnership with Tietronix Software, for developing the multi-platform, interactive 3D educational game “Code of Aegis.” The game was created to encourage middle school students to problem-solve and think critically about science, technology, engineering and math topics.
With your Bachelor of Arts in Serious Games and Simulations from UHCL, you’ll have what you need to design your own game for a successful, lucrative career.
