Have you ever wanted to learn how to make your own computer games? Then this course is for you. This course aims to give learners the experience of every aspect that goes into making 2D and 3D games, all at your own pace.


Semester 1:

Unreal Engine, Blueprint and C++ Programming: Learn how to code your own games in the powerful Unreal Engine 5. Perhaps coding isn’t for you? That’s ok, Unreal has it’s very own visual scripting language called Blueprint which is more user friendly for learners who don’t want to learn C++

3D Modelling for Games: 3D models are an integral part of 3D gaming. Learn how to model in 3DS Max, texture in Substance Painter and implement your characters and assets into Unreal Engine. Unlock your creativity and design your own 3D worlds.

Semester 2:

2D Art, Design and Architecture: Like drawing characters? With 2D Art, Design and Architecture you get to make your drawings come to life with Photoshop and Adobe Animate.

3D Animation for Games: Learn how to animate your 3D characters and assets in Maya. Turn your 3D models into living, breathing and playable characters.
