The New England Institute of Technology (NEIT) has earned a prestigious position in The Princeton Review saluting the best undergraduate schools in the United States and Canada to study video game design for 2013.
The Princeton Review ranks 15 undergraduate schools for top positions and 15 undergraduate schools as Honorable Mentions. NEIT was ranked 14 out of the top tier of schools.
The Princeton Review developed its “Top Schools to Study Video Game Design” project in 2009-2010 with assistance from a national advisory board that helped design the survey instrument and methodology. Board members included administrators and faculty from respected game design programs and professionals from some of the top gaming companies.
The Princeton Review chose the schools based on a survey it conducted in the 2012-13 academic year of 150 programs at institutions offering video game design coursework and/or degrees in the United States and Canada. According to Dr. Thomas F. Wylie, senior vice president and provost, “We are so pleased to receive this distinction from The Princeton Review. Our gaming faculty works tirelessly with students enrolled in our associate and bachelor degree programs in game design and game development technology. Our hands-on approach to learning coupled with a dynamic curriculum plus exciting gaming events and workshops prepare our students well as they enter this exciting field.”
