By far, I would have said that interest and passion should lead you to applying for a testing job. Passion and interest are the only things that make people go out and do things. If you are interested in the testing field, you will learn and you will learn fast. I see no reason why a game tester won’t be excited about learning in a computer science or computer engineering program.
I am a recent college graduate. I have a BS in Computer Engineering. I am working as a software developer at a small, one-man shop right now. I have a few years of professional experience. I am passionate about programming and computer science, and I would like to continue in this field. Is the job that I’m in now something that I could see myself staying in for a long time, or would I be better off looking for other positions?What areas of software do you think I could work in?
If you have a science background, then you might want to consider working in the software industry. There are several companies that have both a software development and testing positions that are available.
My daughter Jenna is a freshman at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. She is a sophomore at WTI and has earned a 3.3 GPA in three years. She plans to major in computer science. She is very interested in gaming. One question would be: If she completed a B.Tech, would the fact that she is a game tester still make her stand out?
Hello Mr. Bay,I am pursuing my undergraduate degree (B.Tech) in computer science at the University of Washington in Seattle. I know I want to go into games, but I have no idea what kind of job I want to do. I’ve tried looking into the Game Design job, but that is too broad and I really don’t know where to start. How would you suggest I start? The school I’m in is not a school for games, so I’m kind of stuck. I’ve done some work with the Unity Engine, so that is a good start.
Your best bet is to get an honors degree in computer science. You can even get an honors degree in software engineering. This means that you've taken four years of computer science, plus one extra year of coursework.
Most game companies don't have an in-house game testing department. They contract it out. But you can still get a job at a game company if you get a bachelor's degree in computer science and a degree in game testing from a reputable college.
The stamp is a fancy word for a marking, and it's commonly found on silver jewelry. The stamp in the picture is stamped on the inside of a ring, where the marking specifies the quality of silver used to make the ring. Most jewelry is stamped with a number, letter, or both. Here are the most common markings. 827ec27edc
