The Princeton Review ranks NEIT Game Design program as one of the best in latest study

The Princeton review has included the New England Institute of Technology on their list of the “Top 50 Undergraduate Schools for Game Design for 2020” and also on their “Top 25 Graduate Schools for Game Design.”

The lists are the 11th annual for the Princeton Review, and were released on March 3rd, 2020.

Why does a story about video gaming appear in automotive news?

Because video game design and automotive design are more closely related than ever before.  According to  Tom Austin-Morgan of Eureka magazine:

“The automotive industry is turning to video game companies to try to develop ways to design and manufacture vehicles. Tom Austin-Morgan reports on the launch of the Digital Engineering and Test Centre where big announcements were made about the future.”

The introduction and evolution of hybrid and electric vehicles have made significant design changes necessary in vehicle design. Horsepower is no longer the important factor in vehicle comparisons.  It’s becoming more about battery range and overall battery life.

The Princeton Review rankings come from their latest survey of school administrators at one hundred and fifty institutions who have game design courses.  That includes majors and also degree programs.  This comprehensive survey studied over forty data points and includes programs in the US and Canada as well as schools abroad.
