Game Technology

HBO Master

Algemene informatie

Many of the challenges in game development consist of new problems, for which ready-made solutions are unavailable. The game industry greatly benefits from knowledge in academia. The gap between scientific and applied knowledge offers great opportunities for those able to tap the source of scientific literature and to apply this in a practical product.

In cooperation with the international game industry, NHTV has developed the Master in Game Technology. This one-year master provides you with skills and knowledge that allow you to take on tomorrow’s challenges in game development, as well as the broad field of digital media.

A tailor-made programme is offered to programmers and visual artists. In both cases, a strong technical approach is used, which trains programmers to become research-oriented problem solvers, and visual artists to become technical artists.

Action learning

As a didactic concept, NHTV applies ‘action learning’. Rather than ‘receiving’ education in the traditional manner, you design and direct your own plan of study. Our lecturers are professional experts acting as role models, rather than being tutors who tell you what to do. The knowledge and principles covered in the master’s programmes is applied to problems taken straight from the professional field.


The Master Game Technology is an excellent match for the bachelor programme Creative Media and Game Technologies / International Game Architecture and Design. Alternatively, students are eligible if they hold a bachelor degree in ICT or graphical design.

s a non-native speaker of English, you must also show sufficient results of one of these tests:

  • TOEFL test (minimum score 80 internet-based and minimum sub score for Speaking 20)
  • IELTS test (minimum overall band score 6.0 and a minimum sub score for Speaking 6.0)
  • CAE, Cambridge Advanced Certificate or CPE, Certificate of Proficiency in English
With an appropriate diploma you may be exempted from the obligation of taking a language test.


This Master in Game Technology prepares students for future positions such as lead artist and lead programmer. These positions are no entry-level jobs. A couple of years of work experience within the industry is essential. The master’s programme offers students the possibility to grow through this positions by providing them with these academic and applied knowledge.
