NEW ENGLAND INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY NAMED ONE OF THE “TOP UNDERGRADUATE SCHOOLS TO STUDY VIDEO GAME DESIGN FOR 2014″ BY THE PRESTIGIOUS PRINCETON REVIEW
EAST GREENWICH, RI – Douglas H. Sherman, Senior Vice President and Provost at New England Institute of Technology, announced that the college has earned a prominent position on The Princeton Review’s just published-list saluting the best undergraduate schools to study video game design for 2014.
Compiled by The Princeton Review, one of America’s best-known education services companies, New England Institute of Technology was named as one of the “Top 25 Undergraduate Schools to Study Game Design For 2014.” The Princeton Review chose the schools based on a survey it conducted in 2013 of 150 game design programs at institutions in the United States, Canada, and abroad. A companion list of “Top 25 Graduate Schools to Study Game Design for 2014” was also compiled. The criteria used by The Princeton Review to make its selections included the school curriculum, faculty, facilities, and infrastructure, as well as career services, student scholarships, and financial aid.
As Sherman stated, “We are thrilled to have earned this distinction from The Princeton Review. Our gaming faculty works tirelessly with students enrolled in our Associate in Science and Bachelor of Science degree programs in Video Game Development and Design Technology. Our hands-on approach to learning coupled with a dynamic curriculum plus exciting gaming events and workshops prepare our students for this competitive industry.”
Princeton Review Senior Vice President/Publisher Robert Franek explained, “It has long been our mission to help students find – and get into – the schools best for them. For students aspiring to become game designers, we highly recommend New England Institute of Technology as one of the best institutions to study and to launch a career in this exciting field. We also salute the faculty and staff at New England Tech and the other schools on our 2014 lists for their exceptional academic and professional contributions to their students and to the industry of game design.”
The Princeton Review developed its “Top Schools to Study Video Game Design” project in 2009-2010 with assistance from a national advisory board that helped design the survey instrument and methodology. Board members include administrators and faculty from respected game design programs and professionals from some of the top gaming companies.
