Young Chinese eye E-gaming major


02-22-2017 09:57 BJT

In this year's art exams, young Chinese work hard to get into the fun, and highly promising domain of E-gaming. At Communication University of China, its newly-set digital entertainment major is proving popular with applicants.

Who wouldn't want to be doing that. And make big money, all day long?

That's one likely reason for the long line of prospective students, hoping to get into the E-gaming major, and have a head start.

Those who have crammed for the tests are level-headed about what 4 years of education means.

This major does not merely test your ability to play games, but also test your ability to design and make a game.

It tests your ideas in this area or your ability to help run a firm in this industry.

"We are looking for talents who will become the brains of this industry. They would be creating the next big things in the market . And their education would prepare them not only for the E-sport industry, but also other areas in digital entertainment," Chen Jingwei, director of Game Design Dept, Communication University of China, said.

Applicants need more than a knowledge and love of E-gaming.  Organizational skills and an eye for esthetics are crucial.

A recent report says last year, e-sport sales in China reached more than 50 billion yuan or some 7.3 billion US dollars, a ten-fold growth since 2010.

But professionals in the industry number only in the tens of thousands.

"We set up this major because we are so short of professionals. We need them to give life to E-games. To create products that will be loved and make China's e-gaming industry great," Chen said.

Turning a hobby into a career. In E-sport, there's a world of possibilities.
