IAU to Offer Game Development Courses

Iran’s Islamic Azad University is to offer undergraduate courses in game development, the university’s website announced.

IAU, which is the largest academic body of the country, and Iran Computer and Video Games Foundation (ICG) signed a memorandum of understanding to boost Iran’s game developing sector.

ICG’s website reported that the two national bodies have developed the new undergraduate courses in line with the latest directive of Iran’s High Council of Cyberspace about game development.

In recent years, Iranian officials have kept an eye on the country’s expanding gaming sector and several schemes have been implemented to monitor the games entering the country.

These measures have been ineffective and even games, which were announced “illegal”, have been available in country’s gray gaming market.

Hadi Jafari, an official with ICG, announced said the new major will be offered as of this fall.

Gaming is vastly popular in Iran that has an estimated 20 million gamers who spend 14.6 billion hours annually, which makes the sector highly lucrative.
