Programming Games and Bringing Game Art to Life
Video games, mobile games, 2D and 3D animations, virtual reality, augmented reality - it's hard to imagine our everyday lives without them and they will continue to accompany us every day in the future. But for them to work, clever minds and good teamwork are needed. Because behind impressive game art, deceptively real animations and error-free games programming lies a great deal of knowledge, experience, creativity and logical thinking.
Our Games & Programming Departments
No matter which of our specialties you choose, we will support you in turning your passion into a profession. You will not only learn the basics of games programming or game art, but also their professional craft. This will not only open doors for you in the gaming industry, but also in advertising, architecture and medicine, where 3D art and programming are the basis of the future.
During my time at SAE Cologne I have grown as a person so much. It was the starting point of my career in the games industry. It’s where I started to learn how to develop games, how to accomplish projects together as a team, and I was given the opportunities to establish my own network inside the industry. At SAE you have all the tools to learn independently, but you are never left on your own. You will always have supporting supervisors and students around you. It’s a colourful mix of younger and older students from entry to professional level with different backgrounds.

My path into the games industry started here
It has always been a big dream of mine to become a game developer. I took my first steps towards realising this dream at the SAE Institute Berlin.
Thanks to the competence and patience of the lecturers and supervisors, I was able to learn the necessary skills to develop real computer games.
I really liked the large and very free practical component. In the projects, the teams had a great deal of creative freedom.
This allowed us to give free rein to our imagination and learn the things that interested us the most.
