Many Purdue University students leave the state after graduation, creating economic loss. The game studies major in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute is one professor’s answer to keeping students in the state.
The college is enrolling more gaming students than ever. The major is only two years old, and it already makes up a large percentage of the students in the Department of Computer Graphics Technology.
WLFI in West Lafayette talked with David Whittinghill, associate professor of computer graphics technology, and several of his students about the new major and where it can take today’s students.
WFYI in Indianaopolis also covered the major and its growth. Listen to or read the story on the WFYI web site.
