The Technical Higher Polytechnic School Tecnocampus (ESUPT), attached to the UPF, teaches the Degree in Industrial and Automatic Electronics, the Degree in Mechanical Engineering, the Degree in Computer Engineering Management and Information Systems, the Degree in Audiovisual Media and the degree in Design and Production of Video Games.
The professional orientation of TecnoCampus, where the university center shares space and synergies with a technological and business park, is complemented by its ascription to a university, such as Pompeu Fabra University.
Its field of knowledge incorporates audiovisual, industrial, information and communication technologies, marketing and digital communities, faithful to a vocation of service to the economic, technological and scientific progress of its environment.
Within the professional profiles of the graduates in Audiovisual media can be emphasized three great fields:
Professional image profile
Professional profile in sound
Professional multimedia profile
And within the professional profiles of the graduates in Design and Production of Video Games draw four major lines:
Professional profile designer and videogame creator
Professional profile programmer and software developer
Professional artistic profile and video game modeler
Professional profile of a video game project management
The professional outings in the field of video games are diverse, since, from the most artistic to the most technological part of programming, more own computer or auditors of the quality of the games. Some possibilities are: Analyst; programming; Designer and developer of software design; Production, design, modeling and animation in 2D and 3D; Gamewriter; Auditor of the quality of the game; Technology Consulting; Network and communications operator, Haptic systems designer; Augmented reality systems designer; Simulator designer, etc.
The video game industry is experiencing great growth globally and at the level of Catalonia. In this sector, demand for well-trained professionals is expected to increase. In the same Tecnocampus they locate a great number of companies dedicated to the applications and the videojuegos, the audiovisual ones, or, in the two slopes.
Also, audiovisual projects increasingly require multidisciplinary teams that integrate professionals from different fields and who are able to interact with each other.
