Game Programming, Advanced Diploma
Video games have always been a part of my life, but I never thought of making a career out of it. Until one day I was playing a Ubisoft game and it inspired me to follow a path in the video game industry.
The Game Programming is a video game focused program, but the skills you learn are transferable to other industries. Depending on your career goals, you can either choose to work for a video game studio or a software developer company.
Thanks to Humber’s networking opportunities, I landed my first job while I was still in my first semester. For the past three years, I have worked with two different companies as a game developer and a junior developer. Since 2019, I am working part-time as a programmer for UP360, a start-up based in Toronto.
During the same time, I also worked as a Peer Tutor at Humber College and initiated an ongoing project that involved the Faculty of Media & Creative Arts and the Barrett Centre for Technology Innovation. The goal was to build a financially affordable breath controller that would help people who have Motor Neuron Disease so they can interact more easily with video games.
I also represented Humber College at hackathons across North America, such as Hack the North, BostonHacks, and MHacks. These hackathons helped me gain new skills and also, provided me with the opportunity to work with real-world issues.

The best thing about this program is the teaching faculty and how they help you to connect with the industry. We had CEOs and managers come to our classes and speak to us. This exposure increased my confidence, and networking helped me land full-time job offers.
My professors also helped me through assignments to develop interpersonal skills, like public speaking.
The most significant moment for me was getting my co-op placement in an independent adjusting company. This opportunity came as a result of Humber College partnership and connections with the industry.
