The student handbook for the ETC students who entered in the program in August of 2021.
Born and raised in the small town of Mangalore, India, Rohan was a very active boy. Among the top in his class in both academics and extra-curricular activities, he always considered himself to be a jack of all trades but master of none. All this changed when Rohan aka Masci began playing video games competitively. He became so involved in the analysis and research of video games that he decided to pursue a career in the gaming industry. The bachelors degree in Information Science and Engineering from RV College, Bangalore, got him job offers from several IT companies, but he rejected them and took a year off to learn animation tools and get a clear idea of what he wanted to do.
After hearing about Carnegie Mellon's Entertainment Technology program, he realized that this was the perfect place to achieve his dreams. In the first semester Rohan worked on BVW projects as a 3D modeler and animator and helped create 5 novel worlds. He also applied his movie making skills in Visual Story class assignments. by the end of the semester Rohan realized that he wanted to specialize in Game Design. For the Spring 2010 semester, Rohan is working on a project for WMS Gaming as a game designer.
