Course summary

**Course Overview**- Channel your love of computer games into your dream career starting with our Foundation Entry Degree in Computer Games Development. It’ll prepare you to work as part of a multi-skilled team, producing high quality, innovative and exciting games to tight deadlines.- Foundation Entry degree courses are ideal if you’ve got the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to directly join an honours programme. It’s a great way to ‘level up’ your skills before you progress to a full degree.- We offer a three-year BSc (Hons) degree as well as a four-year MComp (Hons) degree, with an optional additional sandwich year in industry. Both degrees emphasise software development for computer games - brilliant preparation for any career in software engineering.**Why study with us**- You’ll learn by doing, using the high-performance kit in our purpose-built Games Laboratory and the University's general computer rooms.- Where possible, we make software available for use on your own PC so you can develop your own games.- Our laboratories allow you to use specialist software and to do things that wouldn’t be allowed on the public network (such as configuring networks, exploring computer viruses or testing system security).**Further Information**- The BSc (Hons) Computer Games Development course will develop your programming abilities from the basics to the full set of skills needed to implement a complex interactive computer game. You’ll develop expertise in programming using C++, maths and problem solving - qualities that games companies want from graduates, but which are equally sought after in the wider software development industry. You’ll also study computer graphics and artificial intelligence as well as game mechanics. And you’ll learn about effective practical software development and about developing distributed software and software for mobile devices to widen the range of games you can develop. We support our students to gain placements in major gaming and computing companies including Lionhead, Microsoft and IBM.
