During Wednesday, the Swedish University College of Applied Sciences announced which applications to pursue YH education was granted. Of the 1097 applications received, the authority granted 416.
The geographical spread of YH programs has improved over the past three years. With Wednesday's decision, the range of YH education in the countryside is further strengthened. The result of this application round shows that YH courses are offered in all counties and in 53 of 60 so-called FA regions, labor market regions.
One of the YH courses granted is software testers, starting in the fall. The training will be run by Changemaker Educations at Boden Business Park in Sävast.
- It feels fantastic! It strengthens our presence in Boden and it strengthens the entire Boden Gamecamp. Now there are indie game developers and software testers. It shows that Boden Gamecamp is on the right track and it's a lot of fun, says Per Myrén, Development Manager at Changemaker Educations.
The program comprises 300 YH credits, which means 1.5 years of full-time studies. A total of 40 seats have been granted, 20 each a year.
- It is gratifying that we continue to grow with more education This is an example of successful collaboration within the Arctic Game Lab and together with Changemaker Educations where the region is strengthened by four new courses, one of which is in Boden, says Thomas Fägerman, CEO of Boden Business Park.
According to Robert Bäckström, Game Producer at game company Raw Fury, software testing is one of the most important parts of game production.
- It is a link between designers and players who have been left aside for too long in the gaming industry. An education that offers expertise in both theory, tools and project management for the QA process is very useful.
