Description

  • Project-based learning (PBL) – Each semester is based on a single, realistic project. By the end of the degree, students have already six products developed (games or applications), which are the main elements of the portfolio they will present to the industry.
  •  Clear focus on development – Combination of the various aspects of video games and web/mobile applications creation with software development and software engineering.
  • Multidisciplinary teams – Part of the six semester-long projects are carried out by teams that also integrate students from other B.Sc.’s, increasing the quality of the created products and students skills in multidisciplinary teamwork.
  •  Multiple languages – Students develop their projects using multiple programming languages of increasing complexity (e.g., Processing, JavaScript, C#, and C++).
  • Multiple technologies – Students gain experience using multiple technologies, including game engines, mobile and web development frameworks, 3D, game consoles, PCs, etc. Students will also explore new horizons through modules focusing on creativity, critical thinking, as well as emerging game technologies.
  • Participation in events and market integration - Students are invited to participate in multiple events related to the area, including talks, workshops, student project showcases and game jams.
  • The program is taught entirely in English and includes a mandatory international mobility semester in top international universities, which provides the students with the global perspective that is essential in this professional field.
