Are you curious...

• How you can use multimodal, mobile, and AR/VR to improve and create new experiences?
• How you can create a new generation real-time ray tracer?
• About the theory and correctness behind computational geometry algorithms?

If you’re interested in questions like these, then the Game and Media Technology Master’s programme at Utrecht University might be it for you!  

Apply developments to new innovations 

The game landscape is constantly changing, and new developments come up at a rapid pace. The industry therefore needs professionals who can apply these developments to new innovations and know how to implement them within an organization. The Game and Media Technology Master’s programme will train you to become such a professional.  

Only research master's in the Netherlands 

Game and Media Technology is the only game research Master’s in the Netherlands. The focus is not on developing games, but rather on the technological aspects of games and multimedia in the context of computer science. You will therefore work on creating the systems behind the game.

In this research Master's you will explore:
•    Modelling virtual worlds
•    Creating character animation and behaviour
•    Generating effective scenarios
•    Building multi-sensory interfaces

You’ll test the systems and technologies in our labs such as the Motion Capture Lab or the Crowd Simulation Lab.
