Summer Camps and Esports Tournaments-2019

Becker College – Summer Game Studio
July 6th – July 20th

This residence program introduces high school students to all aspects of game development including: game design; game art and animation; motion capture; programming; sound; testing; and production.

Students gain real-world experience by working as a development team that collaborates across all game development disciplines to build original game projects. Using the same curriculum from Becker’s internationally acclaimed video game major, students in the Studio will work side-by-side in a creative cohort that stresses the importance of team-work and creative collaboration. At the end of the Studio, students will have completed a portion of a fully functional video game that will be showcased for local professionals, and will have gained an understanding of the behind-the scenes operations of a real game studio.

Live in one of our residence halls during your entire camp experience. Dine in and enjoy every meal in our newly renovated dining hall.

Learn in the new state-of-the-art Colleen C.Barrett Center, Becker’s new home for Game and Live Studio, Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality Lab, faculty offices, MassDiGI/New Ventures Center, Yunus Social Business Centre, 24/7 technology access, and more!

Trips to the world’s largest arcade that offers over 600 games, including 300 classic arcade games, indoor mini-golf, a restaurant, a tavern, and more! If you need a break from video games all together, get ready to throw some strikes during atomic bowling night.

Every student will receive a mobile app development kit, including a tablet to take home with them at the end of camp.

Becker College – Esports Management Camp
July 16th – July 18th

Esports is a perfect mix of the core managerial aspects of the professional sports, the media, and advertising industry and combines it with new technological innovation taking place in the gaming and entertainment industry. Over 20 major professional sports teams from the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL have invested millions of dollars into various investments surrounding the growth and development of the Esports industry. The influx of investment capital, the explosion of online viewership, and the growth of pro sports arena-sized events have driven the technology companies, advertisers, pro sports teams, and the media companies to take notice and pursue opportunities in this space.

The Esports industry contains careers in gaming, technology, professional sports management, public relations, creative writing, content production, broadcasting, sales, advertising, and various STEM and business-related fields.

Esports industry growth is currently outpacing the availability of trained executives suitable to fill the new jobs that are available now and in the near future. Students who attend the Institute will gain a competitive advantage in learning about the multitudes of jobs that will need to meet the demands of the industry’s growth.

Becker College faculty with real-life experience in the Esports industry will teach the program. Various guest speakers and industry professionals will also participate in some of the activities.
