"When I graduated from high school, I had it set in my mind that I wanted to work in the Gaming Industry, but had no idea where to start. My counselor at the time pointed me towards NHTI, applauding its Computer Programming curriculum. Taking her advice was one of the best decisions I ever made. The courses at NHTI exposed me to a wide variety of programming languages, and the instructors patiently helped in learning the in and outs of object oriented programming.
The Computer Project at NHTI pairs students with companies to continue learning in a real world environment. The Instructors helped pave the way to my internship at Turbine Entertainment Software, where I was given the opportunity to work alongside a group of talented, veteran game designers. My education really paid off at the end of the Computer Project, when I was offered a full time position at Turbine, working on game systems programming for their Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games. www.turbine.com"
"I am really excited about the new AGGP Degree at NHTI. As soon as I saw the first course listed in the program of studies, I knew I had to try it out. After all, it was gaming that got me so interested in computers that I had signed up for the NHTI programming classes.
For my Computer Project, I was hoping for an internship where I could use my skills related to games and animation. My professor knew of a company right up my alley. I got hooked up with Hatchling Studios to help out in their interactive web/media department. Thanks mainly to the experience I gained through that first course in the AGGP degree, and the experience I gained from the other NHTI computer programming courses, I was soon working at Hatchling Studios on a full time basis. I love it! www.hatchling.com/"
