West Virginia University is turning video gaming into a viable career path, as students are able to participate in focused programs through the Benjamin M. Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources in interactive technologies and serious gaming. WVU Libraries is hosting a series of events as part of International Games Week.
“Younger generations expect to have multimedia in the classroom so we need software that adapts to those needs and our students are taking the initiative to make that possible. It’s a very technical process to create the video games that people know and love, but our students are some of the best in the business and their success is a reflection of the exceptional computer science program here at WVU.” –Frances Van Scoy, associate professor of computer science and electrical engineering
