MCCC hosting an event to promote video game design and development programs

MCCC is hosting a National Video Games Day Open house as part of an effort to promote different study programs that students may not know are available.

The open house is on Sept. 12 at 6 p.m. starting in the cafeteria in the S Building.

The event is open and free to the public and students, it just requires registration that can be located here.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn first hand from faculty what to expect if they choose to dive into the world of video game design, development and programming.

Those in attendance will get to have a tour of the labs and make connections with the faculty that they would be learning from.

“We are having some of the games that prior students developed up and running,” said Leon Letter, dean of the Business Division, “so that people can see some of the sample work students have done.”

The hope is to help show those in attendance just what kinds of things they can learn in the programs. 

Part of the open house will also be talking about transfer pathways for those who finish the programs at MCCC and wish to continue developing their design skills and furthering their education.

Letter said he is excited about the event and about bringing attention to the Game Design and Development programs.

Any additional questions about the event can be directed to Leon Letter, dean of the Business Division, at (734) 384-4282 or
