The GMT master program is offered by the Utrecht chapter of the
center for Advanced Gaming and Simulation
(AGS), a center which resides in the science faculty, department of
information and computing sciences of Utrecht University. The center consists of two groups:
Games and virtual worlds
and Multimedia and geometry.
Program leader is Frank van der Stappen, PhD.
Program coordinator is Twan Maintz, PhD.
The center is an internationally well-known research group that focuses on the area of games, media, and geometry. The group performs both fundamental research in the design and analysis of geometric algorithms, and applied research on how these algorithms can be used in the context of games and virtual environments. The center participates in many (inter)national research projects and has close collaborations with Stanford University, UC Berkeley, Duke University, Free University Berlin, ETH Zürich, and Tel Aviv University, to name but a few. It also has close contacts with research institutes and companies in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe.
