Department of Digital Media


Game development is a central topic of the Digital Arts (DA.ba) and Media Technology and Design (MTD.ba) media degree programs at Hagenberg Campus. Both teach you the basics in the technical and creative fields: game design, level design, game art, game interfaces and playtesting. In addition, exciting electives such as Embodied Play or Games with a Purpose await you. However, the basic orientation of the respective degree program determines whether you focus on technical or creative aspects of games.

Media technology and design

The MTD.ba degree program offers you a broad-based media education with a technical focus. In addition to computer games, the topics of web and user experience are also part of the course. Here you combine solid programming skills with design know-how. Typical career paths are game developer.

Digital Arts

The DA.ba degree program also offers you a broad-based media education, but with a focus on design. Animation, audio/video and, of course, games are the main areas of focus here. Creative know-how and theoretical knowledge in the field of game studies pave the way to professions such as game designer, art director or character artist.
