    The study course is offered by the University of Applied Sciences Mittweida one of the most renowned media universities of Germany. The course is one of the few game programs in Germany taught at a public university and thus free of high tuition fees.

    Rather than just being taught how to use different game production tools, students receive a substantiated university education in the field of gaming and computer sciences. Due to the universities long tradition in actually producing media in close connection to the lectures, students can hone their skills by realizing their own game projects. Through a close contact to media professionals and decision makers of the game industry students are able to find and define unique skill sets fitting to their career choices and also giving them a chance to already cooperate with future employers during their time at the university.
