  • The IT University of Copenhagen (ITU) is a teaching and research-based institution concerned with information technology and the opportunities it offers.
    The Master of Science programme in Media Technology and Games (MTG) is a two-year, international, English language programme which offers a variety of competence profiles within computer games and media technology. We teach courses on game design, programming, theory & analysis, AI, and development. Students work cross-disciplinarily, often on joint projects and actual game productions. Our programme is focused on providing a core education for those wanting to do research on computer games, design them, or build them.
    In addition to our Masters programme the ITU also provides doctoral education in game studies, supervised by our faculty at the Center for Computer Games Research ( Positions are announced at the website (
    Beyond our formal programmes we offer a lot for people who take games seriously even outside the classroom. We offer an ongoing lecture series that brings in speakers from industry, academia, and the art world to talk about gaming. We are the hosts (with the IGDA) of the Nordic Game Jam, as well as a variety of conferences on computer games. The ITU is also a part of DADIU, the National Academy of Digital, Interactive Entertainment, whose student members are drawn from a select group across a number of Danish universities to participate in joint game productions, master classes, and lectures.
