Explore key ideas in game design, programming, architecture, game engines, player experience and game AI. There are lots of different skills that go into game development. This subject is about key technical concepts in game development, and has been developed for people of many different backgrounds and skills. Some programming experience would be nice but is not required. We start by looking at the central role of game design and common development processes used in the industry. You will see how game software can be broken into parts that work together, and in particular the idea of game engines. We’ll explore the relationship between game design, balance and player experience. Lastly we’ll look at enhancing player experience though the use of AI techniques.

Explore the many facets of mining engineering from exploration to production and mine closure. This course will provide an overview of the different phases involved in the mining process. From exploration, impact assessment, production and processing of ore, up to mine closure. Environmental and economic aspects will also be considered because they constitute important parts of the process as a whole. Emphasis will be placed on the key concerns of the mining engineer, the science behind rock behaviour as well as surface and underground mining operations. By the conclusion of this course, you will have a general understanding of the overall mining process.
