It’s Not Just a Game

By: Graduate Studies on

Blake BattleThis past fall, the UCF community proudly gathered to celebrate the achievements of an incredible group of individuals that include CEOs, researchers, an NBA referee, teachers, activists, medical professionals and game developers during the 30 Under 30 awards program. The program recognizes outstanding young alumni who strive for greatness in their professional and personal lives. Young alumni currently make up one third of UCF’s alumni population, making them its largest constituent base.

One of those students recognized was Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy (FIEA) master’s graduate Blake Battle. FIEA, according to Princeton Review is the number one graduate game development program in the world.

Battle is the Director of Development for Madden NFL at EA Sports Tiburon and a brand ambassador for UCF’s FIEA program. Every year, he participates as a judge in FIEA’s Game Design Shootout, a contest where students submit game designs anonymously. Congratulations Blake!
