I started out with always inputting cheat codes into nearly all of my games. This wasn’t to make them easy but, rather to make them much more interesting. Hello, my name is Dawnttae and I am a game programmer designer who wants to further my experience. The experience of making worlds for entertainment and interactivity. I was born and raised in Milwaukee Wisconsin and at the age of five I was given a Ninetendo 64. This “toy” opened my eyes to the world of infinite virtual possibilities. Thus the beginning of my life now as I know it filled with mainly hours of intense violence. Then, in 2019 fall semester MATC programming classes I begin my path to coding and open yet another similar world of simulation. Now, in 2023 I have almost finished my technical terms here at MATC and will go on to greater plains of programming experience and design.


Prepare for a career in animation and gaming, plus attain skills transferable to other industries such as computer programming, multimedia development and film production. Students have opportunities to focus on game design or programming.

Testers, designers and producers are in demand as the use of this technology increases rapidly. New games are continually in production, and computer simulations are used as educational and training tools in schools and businesses.

You can earn the Unity Developer technical diploma on the way to completing the Computer Simulation & Gaming associate degree.
