Nolan Pihart

Following graduating from UW Stevens Point with a bachelor’s in Computer Information Systems, I pursued my passion in gaming. After completing two years at MATC’s Computer Simulation and Game design program, I had the privilege of designing games both solo and with a passionate group of peers using Unity game engine. Ranging from designing UI, to developing intricate stories and level designs, I helped to create games that were both compelling and fun.


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.
