Get ready to join a booming industry

Gaming and multimedia have assumed an important place in our society, giving rise to a booming industry with turnovers exceeding those of the movie industry and generating leaps in computer software and hardware development. The Master’s programme in Game and Media Technology focuses on the technological aspects of gaming and multimedia in the context of computer science.

In the research programme of gaming and simulation, you will explore:

  • Modelling virtual worlds
  • Creating character animation and behavior
  • Generating effective scenarios
  • Building multi-sensory interfaces

It also incorporates such aspects as drama, style, and emotions, with a focus on the technical aspects. Simulating the physics, biology, and psychology of the real world and bringing it to life in multi-sensory simulations are major challenges you will explore in our dynamic programme.

New types of games and hardware reach the market regularly. Moreover, there is increasing recognition of the value of games as an educational tool and the integration of multimedia tools into everyday life is continuing. This creates fertile grounds for those with an advanced degree in the area of Game and Media Technology.

The best thing about the programme is that it’s in such a ‘fresh’ field. There are so many things to investigate, improve, and discover. The potential for gaming is enormous.
