About the Department

The Department for Game Design was founded in 2002 and was the first in Scandinavia to offer undergraduate degrees in game design. We are located in Visby's beautiful harbour area at Campus Gotland.

About the Department

At the Department of Game Design we are conducting research and educating students in game design and related subjects, such as expression in convergent media, human computer interaction and automated animation generation.

Our aim is to deepen the understanding of games, game design and gaming. In our Convergent Media Lab we work with graphics, visualisation, simulation and games, and using games as a teaching aid, so called Serious Games.

National and international collaborations with the games industry and other higher education providers are important to us and raises the quality of our work. 

There are about 25 staff at the Department and each year approximately 300 students study here.
