Game Programming Foundations

Certificate II in Information, Digital Media and Technology ICT20115

Game Programming Foundations teaches students how to program using Unreal Engine's node-based programming script called blueprints and is designed to introduce students to the many career opportunities available for programmers in games, interactivity and creative industries.

Modules of study introduce students to the fundamentals of games design and development. This course of study allows students to gain an understanding of games programming using the Unreal Engine's blueprinting script, one of the world's most popular and widely-supported game engines. The course is intended to give participants an understanding of skills and techniques necessary to create a range of fun, playable games.

Game Programming Foundations features an intensive production unit where students work together to produce a unique game of their own design. Students undertake the game development cycle from design, pitching, completing set milestones, quality assurance and final presentation.
