Title: Info session for prospective MSc in Digital Game students
Date: Wednesday 9 June, 2021
Venue: Remotely; via Zoom
The Institute of Digital Games at the University of Malta, specialised in postgraduate education and research in game design, game artificial intelligence, and game analysis is accepting applications for the M.Sc. in Digital Games commencing October 2021.
The M.Sc. in Digital Games is a multi-disciplinary programme which will provide you, the student, with a deeper understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of game design. The Masters will refine game design knowledge that can be applied in industry and will also strengthen your research skills for you to pursue further studies on a PhD level. Our students have gone on to find employment at small indie studios as well as in large game studios such as CD Projekt RED and Creative Assembly or continue their academic trajectory as PhD researchers, postdocs, and ultimately professors.
Students work on practical game development projects and apply techniques of game design to areas such as education and media. They also engage in critical game analysis and develop experiments with digital game technology.
Game design is the core of the programme and is taken by all students. In our game design classes, students learn the techniques and processes involved in conceptualizing and crafting a game and reflect on the socio-cultural roles and aspirations of game design. They explore game ideas, build and test prototypes and develop games by themselves or as part of a creative team.
The Institute of Digital Games was ranked among the top 25 post-graduate game design programs by the Princeton Review since 2017, ranking at #22 in 2021. University of Malta is also ranked 9th in terms of technical game research, only a few spots beneath industry giants like Google.
The info session will involve a presentation of the M.Sc. and what students can expect as well as a question and answer session with lecturers, students, and alumni.
Please register to remotely connect to the information session, which will be held on Wednesday 9 June at 14:00 via Zoom.
