Course summary

**Course overview**: This degree includes an integrated foundation year if you do not have the appropriate subjects and/or grades for entry to year one of the degree. The course involves using game engines to implement the gameplay mechanics. There is a need in the industry for graduates with a thorough knowledge of games design but also with the ability to technically implement it. You explore core games design alongside programming (C++ and scripting for game engines). You study several shared group modules where you work with programmers and artists in the development of games. In the final year you follow your own specific area of specialisation through the 60-credit project module.**After the course**: This course provides you with a range of technical and design skills, making you the perfect candidate for a career as an independent games developer. Entrepreneurial support from University-based Launchpad helps you to start your career as an independent developer or small company. Many small studios now take advantage of Kickstarter funding to generate the funds to develop their games. As a graduate of this course, you have the skills to put forward a polished proof of concept to attract funding. As the course provides a range of transferable skills in real-time environments such as Unity and Unreal, you are also well suited for careers in virtual reality or real-time visualisation and interactive experiences.
