Course Aim
During the course, you as a student have the opportunity to develop your skills in the direction you choose. An additional objective is for you to practice and improve your ability to find new or advanced knowledge in the field of computer game development.  The student should be able to:
  • With broad knowledge in the field of computer games, to understand the system level, and apply knowledge of mathematics and science for specific issues. As shown through the presentation of concepts and tests.
  • Model, simulate, predict, and evaluate methods and algorithms in the area of computer games. As shown through the implementation and documentation.
  • Identify the need for further knowledge and to continuously upgrade their skills. As shown through the presentation of an in-depth study of the identification of further work.
  • Independently take responsibility for and exploring of, for students, new areas on a scientific level. As well as apply new knowledge in implementations of the code, and explain and present this to other students less familiar with that specific area.

The course content is largely determined by the direction you choose. However, a final plan for the content to be determined at the start with the course leader and mentor.

Individual work under supervision and with a target document as a guide.

The work will be divided into specific time periods with an extent of about 5hp. The end of each time period will require progress reports (written and oral) of results. Both good and bad experiences will be discussed. Throughout the project, a diary of progress should be kept. The final report is to be written in a scientific manner and will be presented orally as well. Examination can occur up to three years after course registration.
