Game Design & Development

Start: February
  • Science and Engineering

Game Design & Development will be offered for the first time in February 2024. The programme consists of a project worth 10 credits and four electives of 5 credits each. You can find the electives that you can choose from below in the tab 'About this minor'.

Project (10 EC)

Do you want to experience what it would be like to work in AAA game production? Do you want to experience working in teams of teams, focussing on your speciality whilst working with others to make a releasable game? Then the Project Triple A experience is for you: supported by coaches, you will design, develop and release a single game with the whole class. You will specialise in specific roles, such as management, production, development, art, game design or game marketing, and work in dedicated sub-teams to produce all the parts needed for a successful game launch. The project is individually assessed through a development portfolio and a Criteria Based Interview (CBI).
