Unreal Engine 4 Basics

Unreal Engine 4 is a professional tool for the development of interactive applications like architectural visualizations,
presentations and video games. In this course you will learn the basics of the realtime engine, so
you’re able to start your own productions. The course is guided by a practical example project, which showcases
the abilities of Unreal Engine 4. Teaching templates and material contained in the course will be made
available for the participants after conclusion. All included materials can then be used freely for private or
commercial projects, to enable further exploration of the learned topics.
