Fundamentals of game development

Fundamentals of game development is an applied software engineering course.

The objective for this course is for students to learn how to use their software engineering knowledge in an entertainment software engineering context.

With selected game development tools, student is capable to independently design and develop a small game programme on some modern game engine platform or work as a part of a team developing a larger game product.

NB! This course has a limit on the amount of FITech students. Persons without a valid study right to a Finnish university have preference to the course.
