Each year the Genesis Group recognizes Central New York educators and programs who make a positive impact on their communities through their excellence in teaching and championship of academics.


On Thursday, November 17, 2022, SUNY Polytechnic Institute’s Bachelor of Science in Interactive Media and Game Design will be among 18 educators and 6 academic programs bestowed with the ‘Outstanding Educators and Programs’ award at the group’s 16th annual Celebration of Education.


The IMGD program focuses on the design, development, and business of interactive media with opportunities to create interactive content and entertainment, and the chance to join and participate in media’s largest, fastest growing, industry. Students learn by doing their first-year; designing games and working with industry-standard software and design suites.


Students take courses in areas like gamification, machinima, and a progression of studio design courses. Students also choose to concentrate in one of three areas as part of the BS curriculum:

  • Software Development and Interaction Design
  • Marketing and Entrepreneurship
  • Art and Asset Production
