Semester abroad in Stuttgart, Germany

The coming semester (six months) I will be following the minor Game Technology at the Hochschule der Medien in Stuttgart. I’m doing this minor because in The Netherlands there is no minor in Game Development. For me there is enough left to learn in the game development field. So I didn’t feel like doing a minor in Software Engineering or something the like.

The courses I will have this semester are:

  • Gameplay programming
    Lua binding, scripting in game engines, gameplay related game engine features
  • Game engine programming
    Game engine structure and core systems
  • Computer Graphics
    Modeling, render pipeline, shaders
  • Practical course in Game Development
    Large ‘realistic’ video game production project of around 30 people
