Games Technology

The Minor "Games Technology" provides a sound introduction to the technological facets of game development in theory and practice. Students will get a brief overview of the history of game development, an introduction to business aspects and to the basics of youth protection, as well as an introduction to games design. They also will obtain profound knowledge about the architecture of games systems and gain a deep insight into the functionality of their components.

Games Technology


Theory of Game Development 6 ECTS
Practical Course in Game Development 8 ECTS
German Language Course 2 ECTS
Choose two out of four:  
1) Computergraphics 7 ECTS
2) Game Physics 7 ECTS
3) Game Engine Programming     7 ECTS
4) Gameplay Programming 7 ECTS

Dependent on the exact choice of the courses in this Minor, attendees have the possibility to learn the fundamentals of 3D computer graphics including practical realization, they can learn everything about game engine construction and apply this knowledge by implementing a small engine, or they can develop their own little game and implement it on top of an existing engine.

In a practical course they will be part of a bigger team, developing a game under conditions similar to those in commercial game projects. The team is organized in several divisions. Based on their individual skills and interests the students can join one of these divisions and engage themselves in project management, engineering, graphics, game design, sound, quality assurance or publishing.

For this Minor, it is required that you already have some experience in programming, most suitable in one of the languages C, C++, C# or Java.

Games Technology is offered both during winter and summer semester.

Since the subject of game development at our university is currently being extended and strengthened, more topics in this area are to come shortly. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us, to get more information.
