ICT & Game Design and Technology

Explore the intersection of technology and creativity by developing entertainment and applied games using AR, VR, and state-of-the-art platforms. Engage in multi-disciplinary teams, work for real clients, and bring your innovative game concepts to life

About the exchange programme

Games change all the time. The market for games as a form of entertainment is huge and is still growing. In addition, games are increasingly used in education, training or for product innovation: the applied games. Within ICT & Game Design and Technology you will learn how to apply your ICT knowledge to the creative development of games, working with the most up-to-date game development tools. The games that are developed are a mix of entertainment and applied games where you work for real clients. We challenge you to be inquisitive and innovative by using new technologies, such as augmented reality (AR) or virtual reality (VR). We also challenge you to create games in new environments, such as the swimming pool or the forest.

Why this programme?

  • Learn to develop both entertainment and applied games using cutting-edge technologies like AR and VR.
  • Work on real-world projects in multi-disciplinary teams for actual clients, bridging theory with practical application.
  • Gain experience with the latest game development tools and platforms in a creative and supportive environment​​.

Content of the programme

In the ICT & Game Design and Technology you will work with state-of-the-art developing platforms (like PC’s, Tablets and SmartPhones) and you will work with the newest interface technology like Oculus Rift, Leap Motion, Brain Computing interfaces. You will use these instruments to develop games in a multi-disciplinary team for real commissioning parties.

We apply the Playcentric Design approach during the semesters. You will learn to take your idea from concept to validated, playable game. The courses will make sure you will feel comfortable in the domain of games and they will deal with concepting, 3D design, sound design and tooling.
