Course objectives
This course intends to enhance knowledge and skills in the area of game development. The course will cover selected aspects of game development, such as game engines architecture, usage of computer graphics techniques or physics simulations in games.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students will be able to:
- understand and describe a mathematical and physical model of basic game mechanics;
- design and implement a simple digital game using such models from the scratch (i.e. not using a game engine);
