Dr. Bruce Gooch

Dr. Bruce Gooch has been named the coordinator of Blinn College’s new simulation and game programming program.

As a graduate student at the University of Utah, Dr. Bruce Gooch didn’t get a lot of encouragement when he expressed interest in the then-new video gaming industry.

In the late-1990s, Gooch sat in on a lecture by University of North Texas computer science and engineering professor Ian Barberry as Barberry discussed a mathematics class in which he asked his students build a game as a final project. Barberry’s enthusiasm about the efforts his students put into that simple video game intrigued Gooch.
