This unit builds on the outcomes of the introductory game programming unit, investigating programming techniques and software patterns commonly used to architect game software. A specific focus of the unit is on artificial intelligence for games and building entity-based software systems commonly found in game engines. Students will learn object-oriented programming techniques and computational patterns relevant to the development of games, simulations, and AR/VR environments. The skills and knowledge developed through completion of this unit also facilitate a clear understanding of the inner workings of game engines and software tools commonly used in game development.


Two problem solving tasks (30%, 30%) 60%, examination 40%
