The Cologne Game Lab of the TH Köln offers the four-semester Master’s program Game Development and Research since the winter term 2010/11.  The paid English-language and interdisciplinary advanced training program is designed to educate pioneers of the digital content industry and is aimed at young media professionals – designers, filmmakers, visual artists, authors and creative talents from related fields, including computer science – who both produce non-linear audio visions for the existing market and want to give new aesthetic and economic impetus to the digital content industry. Through its deliberately compact schedule (required attendance: Mondays and Wednesday evenings), the program allows students to work a part-time job over the course of their studies.
