Course summary

This course teaches the skills and knowledge you’ll need to join one of the most performance-driven applications of computer science – the multi-billion pound global games industry. As a graduate, you will work at the top end of the games industry and will develop computer graphics on high-performance platforms, or write engines for the next generation of games.Developed in collaboration with a prestigious steering group from industry, this course focuses on computer graphics, where programmers must push computing resources to the limit using deep understanding of architecture and high-performance programming to generate new levels of graphical realism and visual effects on cutting-edge hardware platforms.You’ll gain proficiency in low-level programming (C++, Graphic and Compute shaders), a thorough understanding of multi-core and many-core programming techniques, game engine and tool development techniques, and fundamental insight into graphics and the practical techniques used in games including geometric models, animation and simulation, and advanced methods for visual realism.
