IntroductionComputer, mobile, and console games represent a multi-billion dollar global industry. Game Application and Technology (GAT) program offers dedicated degrees in game development, giving students the technical expertise they need to enter the industry confidently. GAT program is designed specifically by Computer Science, BINUS University to provide students with knowledge and skills to develop and create a variety of applied technology in the field of game technology. BINUS UNIVERSITY found this program in September 2012, and it became one of the best programs under the coordination of School of Computer Science. In collaboration with several renowned game industries, GAT program always make continuous improvement in our curriculum, human resources and facilities. The GAT Lab, equipped with high specification computers and dedicated audio editing studio, will facilitate the students and lecturers to collaborate and deliver high quality games. GAT program is designed to adapt the dynamically changing creative industries landscape while ensuring a solid academic foundation and aligned to industry expectations. GAT focuses on game art, game design, and game programming. The structure of the course allows students to gain valuable practical experience in building software systems, and also apply knowledge in creative game design. GAT program have a strong base in computer science foundation subjects as well as offering the theoretical and critical thinking behind current digital technologies. Students will learn in a project orientated environment that encourages collaboration with industries. This collaboration helps them discover creative solutions to contemporary design challenges. Students are encouraged to collaborate, work according to deadlines, maintain attendance levels and develop strong communication skills. As a result, graduates are internationally renowned for their expertise and confident to enter the workplace as newly skilled professionals rather than technicians.
