2. Pre-Requisites

Not specified.

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

This subject is part of the group of subjects "Graphic Design and Videogames", devoted to providing the students with the basic skills needed to develop a computer videogame. The other subjects are "Artificial Intelligence for Videogames", "Graphics Accelerators", "Graphic Design and Animation", and "Videogames and Virtual Reality". Every one of those subjects approaches this topic from a different point of view but in such a way that those students that follow all these courses can have a complete vision of the main techniques required to develop a videogame. In any case, each subject is an independent unit, what means that a student can take full advantage of the topics covered in one subject without taking the other courses.
