Software developers, game programmers, software testers, computer programmers, system analysts, business analysts, web application developers, database administrators and applications or software support: These are some of the titles one can obtain upon completion of a game design program such as Centennial College's Software Engineering Technology - Interactive Gaming (Co-op) offering. These professionals work in various phases of the game programming life cycle, including: game design, game engine design, three-dimensional graphics programming, multiplayer online game programming and more.

The advanced offering at Centennial College, takes three years to complete and results in an Advanced Ontario College Diploma as well as the ability to be employable directly upon graduation. Places that have hired students of this interactive game design program include SpongeLab, CIBC, Bell Canada, Hudson's Bay Company, ManuLife, Royal Bank and more.

The game design courses within the program are delivered using cutting-edge technology geared to industry standards while being led by knowledgeable and approachable faculty members who have diverse business experience and academic credentials. The focus of these game design courses is on object-oriented software design methodologies, user-oriented interface design, Microsoft's .NET, DirectX, XNA, Software Testing and QA, C#, Java, J2EE, Oracle, MS-SQL Server, Unix/ Linux, HTML/ XML, Rational/ WebSphere, and more. Specific courses covered in the game design program include: Software Engineering Fundamentals, Introduction to Database Concepts, Functions and Number Systems, Web Interface Design, Introduction to Game and Simulation, Game Programming, Object Oriented Software Engineering and many others.

To complement training and ensure students are ready for the field, they participate in three terms of employment placement with a real employer. The program helps students to prepare through an Employment Pre-placement course, which teaches them about interview techniques, workplace etiquette, co-op activities that they’ll have to complete and more. In order to be eligible for co-op, students will have to complete a minimum of 80 per cent of Year 1 courses, a minimum C grade in COMM-170/171 and a 2.5 GPA or greater for COOP-221. This program's co-op option is a paid placement.

Additionally, to graduate from this game design program, students are required to have a minimum C grade average.
