Game Programmer

CSN: Yes

Start date: 16/08/21

Location: Boden

Put your creative and technical talents into development! You learn two programming languages (C ++ and C #) and then continue to develop your technical expertise in programming, problem solving skills in the application of game design theory and mechanics, and that you learn two of the most used game engines: Unity and UnReal . 

In the training, we also deal with how to develop multiplayer games and mobile app games, graphics programming with OpenGL, shader programming and how to create VR games (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality). 

High-quality games bring together both the technical and creative aspects of game programming and you get lots of practical experience of creative processes through Futuregame’s game projects. All so that you will be prepared to understand the markets of the future and how you can best influence them. 

Game programmers give you a solid competence base in Game Programming, Tools Programming, Game Engine Programming, AI Programming, Game System Design. You learn the game programmer’s craftsmanship and art with the client as a guiding star. 

As part of the education, you do LIA (Learning at work) and make up 25% of the education. The LIA deepens your learning and you gain valuable work experience. We work with a number of companies, for example; Coldwood, Grand Pike, Dice, Zordix, GoldTown Games, Paradox Arctic, Turborilla, Avalanche Studios, EA, LevelEight, North Kingdom etc.
