Not only do we have a brand-new Game Programming education at the school, but a completely new role has been created for this education as well — meet Krister Cederlund, Head of Game Programming at Futuregames.
Krister has a strong educational background in game programming and game development as a teacher at university, college and secondary school but has also worked as a game programmer for an indie studio. He has done A LOT of coding in the ten years he has been working professionally with games, to say the least. “As the Head of Game Programming I will help students reach their goals and go into the industry as strong, confident game programmers”, says Krister.

Fun fact: Krister loves roleplaying games and adventure games and his all-time favourite is Beneath a Steel Sky from 1994.
A very warm welcome to our new Head of Game Programming!
What's it like to be a game programmer and where do you even get started? Olivia changed paths after studying economics and French for two years, and today she's one of the junior game developers on her way into the industry.
Today the Swedish National Agency for Higher Vocational Education approved two new program starts for Futuregames. Game Designer and 3D Artist will also start in the spring of 2020.
