Digital Games (TH Köln)

Cologne has played host for over ten years to gamescom, the world’s biggest exhibition of computer and video games. So it’s only logical that the city should also offer training for budding experts in the field. Game design, game art, game programming: the bachelor’s degree programme “Digital Games” teaches (international) students to think like entrepreneurs – namely in an innovative and future-oriented manner. In seminars and workshops given in English, students learn all they need to know about storytelling, animation and project management.

Informatics: Games Engineering (Technical University of Munich)

Tomorrow’s developers can take a degree in games engineering in Munich. This bachelor’s course focuses on informatics and combines this with mathematics and knowledge about gaming technologies. Though students learn how to create computer graphics, the degree also gives them a good knowledge of simulations, artificial intelligence and mobile and internet-based social games.
