Welcome to the website of the research group Serious Games Engineering (SGE).

The research group Serious Games Engineering in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Kaiserslautern is managed by Assistant Professor Dr.-Ing. Marc Herrlich.

The term Serious Games means using computer and video games and related enabling technologies, e.g., game engines, for other purposes than pure entertainment. Application areas are manifold. For instance, motion-based games for health and specifically for physiotherapy are one focus area of the group’s research.

Besides motion-based games, the group’s activities in research and teaching comprise various additional application areas of Serious Games as well as fundamental questions from the field of human-computer interaction (HCI). You will also find an overview of recent work on our publication page.
