Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi

Videogame programming is one of the most exciting and challenging disciplines in Computer Science as it attempts to combine, in real-time, concepts in computer graphics, human computer interaction, networking, artificial intelligence, computer aided instruction, computer architecture, etc.

In this course students will learn the basics of videogame design and programming, attend specific seminars from field experts, and form project groups to design, build and demonstrate a simple video game.
