Subject

Computer games

On the BSc (Hons) Games Development course you will learn the complete end-to-end process of making games. This includes core principles such as programming, but also project management, deployment and a deep understanding of game mechanics. All of this will result in making you highly employable in an ever changing and fast flowing industry. One of the unique components of this degree is that throughout the course the emphasis is on doing- and you will be working on game projects from day one. You will graduate with the technical and business skills that will allow you to pitch yourself to the games industry and with a games portfolio of completed work.
