The Princeton Review included NMU among the Top 50 recommended undergraduate game design schools in the country. The top 8 were ranked and the remaining 42 were listed alphabetically. The recommendation is particularly noteworthy as NMU lacks a specific game design program.
Electronic Imaging has had students successfully go into the game design field based on technical fluency, adaptability of skills, and willingness to fit into the game design pipeline. While this is a learning process, Electronic Imaging stresses being flexible as an artist, constantly learning, and broad design awareness. Students interested in pursuing game design are encouraged to take computer science courses in addition to art and design courses.
