Backstage Pass in the gaming Industry held an MOU with Jawaharlal Nehru Architecture and Fine Arts University for almost a decade and from 2019 onwards, has become an affiliated college of JNAFAU.
We are an establishment that caters to a niche field of the education sector that explicitly offers courses in the gaming Industry of superb quality and detail.
The degrees provided to the students from this year (2019) onwards are:
- Bachelors of Science (Honors) in Computer Science and Game Development
- Bachelors of Arts(Honors) in Game Art and Design
- Bachelors of Arts(Honors) in Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
These degrees are four-year courses that are divided into eight semesters.
We also provide one-year courses in the gaming industry in collaboration with Lincoln University, Malaysia:
- Advanced Diploma in Game Development
- Advanced Diploma in Game Art & Design
- Advanced Diploma in Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality
Though there is a change in the nomenclature of the degree, the knowledge and options given to our students have remained constitutionally identical concerning courses, teaching methodology, mentors and most importantly, recruitments. Unlike other colleges offering courses in the entertainment industry such as animation, VFX, film, etc., we provide a four-year degree that is deemed necessary by many lucrative employment opportunities and prestigious universities for higher studies.
Another salient feature of our academy is its location. From the beginning, it’s situated in a prime location (Madhapur) that is surrounded by game companies; therefore, it is easily accessible to potential recruiters and mentors. It also enables students, who are taken aboard as interns, to manage both their class and work schedules as most of our students begin interning in the third year and start earning their bread at an early age.
