Product design, computer science programs to host forum on online games

A forum titled “Online Games as Art and Trend” will be held on Wednesday, July 17, 1:30 p.m. at Audio-Visual Room 2 of the University of the Philippines Cebu (UP Cebu).

This event will cater to UPians who want to pursue online and mobile game development as a career.

“Online game is really a trend now, especially for the young generation”, said UP Cebu product design program coordinator Palmy Pe-Tudtud in an interview.

Guest speaker Alfred Vesligai, a finalist of the National Young Entrepreneur competition last 2011, and President of Eurocorp Consulting, Inc., a company specializing in online and mobile games development, sees so much potential in UP Cebu students, particularly in the fields of product design and computer science.

Vesligai will lecture to students on online gaming, technology, and art.

The forum, organized by the product design and computer science programs is expected to open more opportunities for students to enhance their skills in the field of online and mobile games development and land a job in this field in the future.

“This is an opportunity already for us to really learn more about the trend and art,” Tudtud said./CHENNIE MONTERO AND UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES CEBU PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICE
