What Parents Are Asking

As video games get more and more advanced, the production behind them is as sophisticated and complex as the making of blockbuster films! From designing amazing graphics to coding sophisticated mechanics, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes—which means a lot of industry opportunity for those wanting to get their foot in the door.

This program is ideal for college-bound students interested in innovation, business, leadership, management, or even launching their company in or around the booming gaming industry.

This course is designed for students of all skill levels. With content exclusively from Harvard Business Publishing Education, your child will unlock many secrets and lessons learned from case studies with Epic Games and Sega—content to help them better understand, respond, and adapt to an ever-changing business environment.

While iD Tech is proud to offer world-class experiences on many of the world’s most prestigious university campuses, we also recognize that many families need the flexibility of quality virtual learning!
