The ETH Game Technology Center (GTC) provides an umbrella over ETH research, teaching, and outreach in the area of game technology.
The ETH GTC connects research groups across ETH that are working on technology relevant and impactful for the game industry. By providing a unifying umbrella over these activities, the ETH GTC focuses discourse about the impact of ETH technology on the field of gaming, both from an academic and industrial perspective. Initiatives spearheaded by the GTC directly address the unique way in which gaming can impact real-world challenges through gamification of socio-economic behavior.
To advance ETH’s educational mission, the ETH GTC offers courses such as the ETH Game Programming Laboratory and invited speakers from the game industry to contribute directly to education and scholarly enrichment. The ETH GTC actively supports educational programs such as the promotion science to young women and activities like the Treffpunkt Science City that communicate the magic of science both to youth and to adults.
