At Laboratório de Jogos (Game Lab) we create a bridge between students, researchers, game developers and the gamers' community. We have been around since September of 2007 and, back then, we were known as Área de Jogos do Instituto Superior Técnico (AJIST).
Since our foundation, we grow a lot and now we teach 6 different courses within our Game Master's Specialization, have a yearly event called MOJO and several research projects and master thesis related with video games.
The Games Lab aims to teach game design and development concepts, support any student that wants to be a game developer, promote researchers and students' work and be a bridge between the academic community and game companies.
Our work is supported by a network of teachers, researchers and professionals that help and guide the students during their masters and give them the best tools to design, develop and promote their games.
