Apply to the Capstone Course

Applications are open for the 2D Game Development Capstone Course for Fall 2015! Apply here: Capstone Course Application Form.

Things to consider when applying:

  • Teams and work-in-progress project(s) are now being accepted!
  • Students must have a portfolio website to apply! We recommend using Behance, Seelio and LinkedIn. Behance is better for those who want to design a portfolio, while Seelio is better for those who want to create a solid portfolio fast. Although not really a portfolio site, if you are applying as a programmer, a LinkedIn site is sufficient. Musicians/sound designers may use other sites, such as  SoundCloud, to demonstrate their work.  Learn more about some free portfolio sites.
  • Please send your resume to Dr. Paul Toprac in PDF (preferred) or MS Word format: topcat@cs.utexas.edu. If you don’t hear back from Dr. Toprac within 3 days, please check with him to ensure that he has received your application and email.

Seats are limited, so apply now! We are still looking for artists, animators, composers, sound designers, special effects artists, programmers and world designers.

Priority (early decision) deadline is Friday, April 17!  Applications will continue to be accepted after this date until all the seats are filled.

How will your application be assessed?
We will primarily focus on your grade point average, coursework and the level of experience and expertise shown in the portfolios. We are looking for the most talented, creative and productive candidates who can work together in teams to produce exciting new games and mobile apps. We will also take into account when you graduate, your career goals and any other relevant information, as well as passion.
