HAW to Host International Workshop on Three-Dimensional Worlds

The Grand Theft with 16 international participants. Developing online games - from the first idea to the final product

The Electrical Engineering Students’ European Association (EESTEC) will host a week-long 3D reality game called The Grand Theft EESTEC in Hamburg 30 November – 7 December at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg). Main goals of the workshop are to increase the cross-cultural exchange of students and to promote academic transfer. HAW’s students in Hamburg will thus work together with international students on a a project, ranging from the theoretical introduction to the development and application of a computer game.

International Student Exchange For More Than 30 Years

The Electrical Engineering Students’ European Association is an apolitical, non-governmental and non-profit organisation, which targets and trains through it’s activities students from electrical profile universities, Institutes, and technical schools in Europe. Founded in the Netherlands in 1986, EESTEC today is present in 28 countries and at 53 universities across Europe with more than 6,000 members, of whom 3000 are currently active. EESTEC’s Local Committee (LC) Hamburg was founded in 2004. Located at HAW Hamburg, it has already been hosting two events, allowing Hamburg students to network internationally and to gain working experiences abroad. The Grand Theft will be the chapter’s third event.

Improving Academic and Social Competences

In the course of the workshop, students will put the streets of Hamburg into a 3D reality game called Grand Theft EESTEC, and created something new and unique with the Unity Framework. Combined with lectures in the Unity framework, needed basics in C# and next level marketing skills, the workshop’s 16 participations will witness the process of game developing from the initial idea to the actual distribution. And the social part? A city tour included Reeperbahn fun and Hamburg’s “übercool” Christmas markets, as it says in the invitation.
