  • Global Game Jam

    Phoenix Global Game Jam

    Young game developers camped out at University of Advancing Technology for 48 hours to participate in the Phoenix Global Game Jam 2016 from Jan. 29-31.

UAT is no stranger to hosting game jams as our game students regularly hold jams throughout the year. This one…

    UAT alumni and valedictorian Nicholas Azevedo has created an awesome web comic series entitled, “Fruition of the Damned: A World’s Tale,” which is a character-driven fantasy saga that follows four brothers who come of age in the wake of a global tragedy, sealing their fates in a quest for ultimate revenge.

Student Innovation Project

SIP Fair

Feb 9, 2016

The Student Innovation Project, or SIP, gives students a chance to develop an innovative idea and put their creativity to work. As early as their sophomore year, students are asked to begin brainstorming for their SIP, and also have two classes that help students prepare for their project. Students take PRO211, taught by Professor Vita-Moore, and PRO 483, taught by Professor Belanger. During senior year, students use most of the time to work on the SIP, constructing a working model that will later be judged at the SIP Fair by UAT Faculty and local industry leaders for feedback.
