Unity - Create with Code
The course will be delivered through online sessions only and the core learning will take place in a tutorial fashion.
Although peer-assisted learning is encouraged, students are expected to produce individual deliverable (in other words, no group work).
The course will be using Itslearning as the learning platform and teaching sessions will be conducted via Zoom.
Each Tuesday dedicated Support Engineer is available and the student's progress is monitored on weekly base.
The game project is evaluated as follows:
- Industry expert evaluation of the game (H-5);
- Lecturer overall impression of the game (H-5);
- Peer evaluation of the game (H-5).
The average of these will give the final grade for the course.
Missing the concept or prototype presentation will result in the deduction of 1 grade point from the final grade.
Attending less than 75% of the online sessions will result in the deduction of 1 grade point from the final grade.

Engineering and Business
Course lecturers and Game Lab engineers will be present online every week during the allocated timetable slot.
There won't be two separate sessions or groups as everything is online.
So only one online session each week.
The first 30-60 minutes of each session will be used to:
- Share game industry news
- Highlight some of the latest development trends and technologies
- Open more topics from Introduction to Game Development Tools
- Introduce and Demonstrate tools that can help develop content for your personal project
- Respond to general student queries
The remaining time of each session will be an opportunity for students to work on their own games and seeking assistance from the Game Lab engineers.
Lecturers will review student progress with the Unity tutorial work on a weekly basis.
Students can also reserve close-contact support at the Game Lab with an engineer on Tuesday afternoons. Please note that the COVID19 situation only allows for the presence of 10 students at a time and that face masks are mandatory for close-contact sessions. The lecturers will monitor the scheduling and adjust where necessary to ensure the maximum number of students is not exceeded.

This course leans on CDIO principles and takes a project-based learning approach.
This course requires students to work 135 hours and is divided as follows:
- Contact sessions and presentations: 20 to 30 hours
- Independent tutorial work: 40 to 50 hours
- Developing your own game: 60 to 70 hours
All course work is individual
Students will be required to present their game projects in 3 milestones:
21.09.2021 - Concept project design document presentation of personal project and peer evaluation
02.11.2021 - Prototype presentation of personal project and peer evaluation
14.12.2021 - Final game presentation and peer evaluation
The concept presentations are for monitoring student progress and used as the basis of formative feedback. If you miss this milestone, one grade point will be deducted from the final grade.
The final game presentation is mandatory - failure to present this will cause the student to fail the course.
