Course summary

Create games and interactive experiences or script game mechanics and programming tools by choosing a world-leading degree that arms you with the skills you need for a fast-paced and exciting career in the multi-billion pound computer games industry. Widely recognised as the place to gain a games qualification, this degree will develop your skills in games programming, artificial intelligence for games, network programming, and interface design, making sure you’re adept in the use of industry standard game engines and technologies.

The programme boasts the best teaching in the area (a blend of industry and academic experience) and is designed to evolve as the games industry changes and technology advances. This ensures you’re well equipped for employment within the creative industries sector. You’ll graduate with the confidence and skills required to work in one of the most demanding industries in the world, giving you a distinct advantage over other computing graduates intending to pursue a career in the games industry. Throughout the programme, you’ll be given the opportunity to work closely with local and global games industries, as well as collaborating with other games related courses, including art, media and audio.

Learning and Assessment

A mixed assessment strategy is used on the programme. Most modules are assessed through coursework, which may include project work and student-led presentations. Some modules use a mixture of coursework and formal examination.

You’ll spend around 12-15 hours per week in lectures, tutorials and laboratories. Lectures are used to present key concepts, theories and techniques. Tutorials and laboratory-based activities increase your understanding of the subject and allow you to develop your competence and confidence in technological and theoretical work. Throughout your degree, you’ll be required to actively participate in group work, discussions, seminars, and private study. The course also allows for customisation, which lets you develop a specialisation, such as artificial intelligence, while building a broad foundation in game applications development.
