This professional master’s Game Technology programme at the Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUAS) has been developed in collaboration with the international game industry. You will learn to look at research and development from different angles, and through common research phases you will actively research and develop possible solutions.
To prepare for this master's programme, you write a project proposal in which you summarise your ideas for a research project and demonstrate awareness of the current state of the field you wish to study. Together with a designated supervisor you will work on your project for a full year, allowing you to explore the subject matter in depth and create a meaningful contribution to your research field and industry.
Industry partners asked us to train master’s students with high-level skills at researching, testing, and resolving contemporary issues related to the content, creation, and culture of video games. The gap between academic and applied knowledge offers great opportunities for those able to review academic literature to look for findings that could be applied to create practical applications.
After your graduation you will be prepared for future positions such as a specialist in art, programming, or design and roles in R&D. These positions are not entry-level jobs, and a couple of years of work experience within the game industry is essential. This master’s programme offers you the possibility to achieve these positions more rapidly by providing you with thorough research skills and strong communication skills.
After your graduation you are entitled to the degree of Master of Science.
