Game Engine Development With C++

Course Description
Jump straight into C++ to create your first game—and that's only the beginning. Explore commonalities between games to find similarities in how the code is structured, diving deeper to discover which elements help you implement new content quickly and efficiently.

This knowledge will form the foundation for creating your own game engine. Learn what code to keep and what to cut as you build the starting point for multiple projects. Game engines don't just save time; they're an essential part of professional game development, enabling iteration on mechanics and balance until the game is perfect.

In this course, you will:

  • Read user input and print formatted output
  • Implement a game loop
  • Add graphics and controls to a game
  • Design an API for creating game engine content
  • Build foundational code that can be used for a variety of games

Your tuition includes:

  • Personalized learning + take-home project
  • College-ready digital portfolio
  • University campus experience + meals and housing
  • iD Small Class Guarantee™
  • 12 exclusive online iD Master Classes ($300 value)
