Hello guys,

We've got a circular this evening in college, the college is sending 5 people team to the Techozion 2013 WorkShops.

These are the WORKSHOPS that are available for our branch (CSE) students

  • Cloud Computing
  • Cyber Forensics And Android Security
  • Unity Game Development

I'm thinking of taking Unity Game Development but my lecturer is saying that "There won't be any use since in India, the Gaming has very less market". She is advising me to take Cyber Forensics, but I didn't know a bit of security stuff.

What would you recommend?

My guess is most advisers would try to steer a student away from a game dev course regardless of what country we're talking about.  The country seems pretty moot to me.

Same problem here, my mentor kept steering me away from game development.

I guess it is because game development is only an small job market and you need to be pretty good to be able to join some big company.
School does not focus on you or your possibilitys, but just on the material they have to offer.
Material from school is just not enough to get you ready, therefore they just advise to steer away.

Thanks for your reply @RobinB

I'm going to take a decision tomorrow morning and I think I'm going to select "UNITY". I think there are jobs since the workshop is being conducted at NIT (National Institute of Technology) and another reason is I have another 3 years of studies to get a job.

From a mentor's perspective it's a useless course.  Too small a pool of job openings.  I'd say it doesn't really matter what you choose.  These things tend to target a mid-level skill person that knows nothing about the topic...so you'll probably learn very little regardless.  And it's not like any potential employer is going to say..."Gosh you took THAT course...welcome board".  They won't care in the slightest.  Cloud computing = meh.  "Cyber Forensics And Android Security"...if you know nothing then that could be reasonable...plus the android side could be interesting cause you can think "games" to make it more interesting.  Probably the only advantage of taking the unity course is not what you might learn...but from the people you might meet.  Networking (with people) rules.  Personally I'd do the unity course to try to make some contact...even if only with other students.

Cyber forensics seems to be a growing market, so if you consider jobs outside game development, it is a good course to take.
