Program Overview

The Academy of Interactive Entertainment (AIE) offers two primary paths for students, one in programming and the other in art. Programming students have an intensive two year period of learning everything they need to know to make program games. Art students have an intensive first year covering all the tools they will need to be successful in their chosen field. They will then select a specialty at the start of the second year, choosing between game art and design or 3D animation and visual FX for film.
