Are you looking for a challenge? Would you like to know more about computer graphics, artificial intelligence and advanced algorithms?

Would you like to put this knowledge into practice by creating computer games? Then the exchange programme Games Programming might be right for you.

Games Programming

About the programme

Games programming is a minor for Software Engineering students who are up for a challenge. In this minor you will learn several advanced techniques and expand your software engineering skills. These new techniques and languages can be applied in games, but in other fields as well.

Course modules

The exchange programme consists of the following courses: Game Algorithms and Artificial Intelligence, Computer Graphics, C++ Programming and a Game Project.

Fun challenge

Game Programming is a fun challenge, but also the most demanding form of software engineering. There's just one way and that is to do it right in the best possible way. Game programming is NOT sleeping and definitely NOT profitable (for most), but game programming is FUN and we love game programming!

Credits back home

As an international exchange student at Windesheim, you will get study credits that may count towards the qualification you are studying for back home. So studying at Windesheim doesn’t have to mean extending your overall study time. You will make a ‘learning agreement’ covering your stay.
