Graduate Diploma of Games and Apps Production

Murdoch University

Video Games and Apps are everywhere. In our living rooms, classrooms, in the workplace, assisting our fitness routines, our shopping experiences, and as part of the way we connect and share with family and friends. As a developer of interactive media, there has never been a better time for your creations to gain global exposure and end up on countless people's screens. But there's no use making an app that nobody wants, or having something amazing that doesn't get the exposure it deserves. The Graduate Diploma in Games and Apps Production will provide you not only with the knowledge and skills to create games and apps with the latest software technology and industry best practices, but you'll also learn how to develop business and marketing skills too. You'll gain deeper insight into the tools and methodologies of game development as well as understanding software development project management, and dynamic collaborative practices for efficient workflow. Working closely with industry, your projects will be informed by real-world contexts such as market analysis and business requirements. Additionally, you'll be creating games and apps fit for market - developed at all times as viable products for commercial and non-commercial environments. The course encompasses complete end-to-end development of games and apps from concept through to final product, release, and maintenance. The Graduate Diploma in Games and Apps Production equips you with both the experience you need to envisage, design and create innovative and imaginative games and apps, but also the business knowledge and marketing skills to make sure the world knows about it. This course is relevant to those who wish to create interactive multimedia applications for desktop, mobile, and console platforms. This includes games or apps for entertainment or education, data visualisation, as well as software development for process management, training, or teaching.
