New England Institute of Technology Named a Top Undergraduate School for

Game Design by The Princeton Review

East Greenwich, RI – New England Institute of Technology(NEIT) is one of the top undergraduate schools offering programs in game design according to The Princeton Review®. The education services company features NEIT on its 11th annual ranking list, “Top 50 Undergraduate Schools for Game Design for 2020.” The Princeton Review released the rankings on March 3 along with its list of “Top 25 Graduate Schools for Game Design.” Both lists are posted here.

Dr. Douglas H. Sherman, Senior Vice President and Provost at New England Institute of Technology, stated “We are so pleased to receive this distinction from The Princeton Review.  Our Video Game Design and Development faculty work tirelessly with students enrolled in our Associate in Science and Bachelor of Science degree programs. Our experiential approach to learning coupled with a dynamic curriculum and exciting gaming events and workshops prepare our students well as they enter this exciting field.”

The Princeton Review tallied its ranking lists based on a survey the company conducted in 2019 of administrators at 150 institutions that offer game design courses, majors or degree programs. Surveyed schools are located in the United States, Canada and abroad.

The survey collected information about the schools’ game design programs in four areas: academics, faculty, technology and career prospects. In all, more than 40 data points were analyzed for the final tallies. More information on The Princeton Review rankings methodology may be found here.

“We highly recommend New England Institute of Technology and every one of the schools that made our lists for 2020,” said Robert Franek, Editor-in-Chief for The Princeton Review. “Their faculties are outstanding, and their facilities are awesome. Just as impressive: their alumni include many of the video game industry’s most prominent artists, designers, developers and entrepreneurs.”

The Princeton Review’s reporting partner for this project, PC Gamer (a monthly magazine published by Future PLC), has a feature on the ranking lists in its May issue. It reports interesting facts on the top schools’ programs, faculty and alumni. The issue lands in subscriber mailboxes in mid-March and on newsstands March 24.

The Princeton Review developed its “Top Game Design Schools” project in 2009 with assistance from a national advisory board that helped design the project survey and ranking list methodology. Board members included administrators and faculty from respected game design programs and professionals from some of the top gaming companies.

The Princeton Review is also known for its annual rankings of colleges, business schools and law schools in dozens of categories. The rankings are reported on and in the company’s books including The Best 385 Colleges, and The Best Value Colleges. The Princeton Review is not affiliated with Princeton University.
