This subject introduces the fundamentals of programming 3D games in existing game engines. This subject aims to build student familiarity with the API library of a specific game engine (such as Unity 3D) as well as give students an appreciation of the technology and algorithms that form those engines. This establishes the skills required to successfully contribute to the significant development capstone projects in the final year of the Bachelor of Science in Games Development (C10229). The assessments of this subject also provide students with the opportunity to explore their choice of more advanced topics to further expand their competencies in games programming and prepare them for lifelong learning and skill development in game-related disciplines.
