Video Game Design Colleges

Over the weekend, Triangle Esports hosted a collegiate Valorant tournament at our location in Waverly Place, Cary. Colleges that participated included NC State, Elon, William Peace, UNCG, and High point.

That’s right! Colleges have esports.

Not only do colleges now have esports teams, but offer degrees as well, in areas such as video game design, simulation, and more. North Carolina Esports Academy has been working with various local universities to assist in the path toward becoming a collegiate student gamer. 

Partnering with Local Colleges

Colleges are coming to local partners like North Carolina Esports Academy because they are looking for specific types of people to be an addition to their video game design degree programs. Here at North Carolina Esports Academy, we provide the right building blocks and stepping stones when it comes to video game design and simulation in esports.

Check out our after-school programs and youth teams to learn how you can set your child up for success with a future in video game design.
