Course Game Developer Starter with UE | GAMING & METAVERSE duration Part-time

Due to the presence of large software houses and of an increasing number of independent developers, the video game market is constantly growing. In fact, the presence of dedicated frameworks and of innovative development environments has made the world of video game development accessible even to enthusiasts who do not have a programming background.

But what is the right way to turn an idea into a video game and launch it on the market?
It is with this question in mind that this course was born. With its hands-on approach, this course aims to address the study of the various components of a video game passing from the familiarization with the Engine to the development through Unreal Engine Blueprints, from the movement of simple geometric shapes up to the development of a real video game.
The topics of the course will be addressed in concurrence with the development of a series of small video games, so as to closely analyze the issues and see how they fit within the development process with Unreal Engine.


  • UE4 Basics
  • GAME I: Side scroller game
  • GAME III: Flippy Knife-Like
  • GAME IV: Pong 3D

*(A GameJam is a competition between Game Developers where a theme is defined and the participants, in group or individually, have to create a video game that best reflects the defined Theme in a limited time)

Goal: to transfer to the participants the technical knowledge in the field of Game Development, Profiling and Debugging starting from learning the basics of Unreal Engine 4 and then moving on to the development of real video games. At the end of the Module, participants will take part in a Game Jam, which will allow them to put into practice the techniques they have learned.

Request a one-on-one interview to learn more about each teaching unit.

This course is aimed at all enthusiasts who want to approach the world of video game development through a practical approach, which does not require programming skills.
To attend this course, it is thus not required to have a programming background. The minimum requirements to access are: a basic knowledge in the use of computer, a keen curiosity for the world of videogames and the desire to understand the mechanics behind their development.

At the end of the course you will have acquired a deep theoretical and practical knowledge of the issues related to the development of video games with Unreal Engine, from the pre-production to the development, profiling and debugging phases.
