Getting an advanced engineering degree is a process of elimination more than a pursuit of higher learning at most schools. It requires determination to see it through because many aspects of the system are looking to weed you out - a major failing in my opinion - rather than attempting to grow interest in the field.

Working on games and at Riot in particular is a very different experience - and much more rewarding. The same problem solving and design skills you use as an engineer are applicable here, but you also need lots of gameplay experience and the desire to create content for others to enjoy.


OMG I HAVE THAT!!! PICK ME PICK!!!!







plz...?

I'm a second year pre-med at Saint Louis University


WOO SLU! Howdy neighbor (formerly) I got my masters of science in computer science from Washington University

And I will echo the earlier sentiments ... getting your masters/phd is more of an exercise in determination rather than intelligence or anything else. Can you survive somehow?

I just finished my first year in college majoring in Computer Science because I love programming and everything about it.

You guys at riot think you'll have room for a programmer in a few years? =D

I know what you mean I've been recently "weeded" out. But I wasn't really enjoying it anyway the professors seemed more interested in following the syllabus as opposed to actually teaching. Not to say I didn't learn anything just not much I could use in everyday life.
