Our BSc (Hons) Games Computing with Virtual and Augmented Reality programme is designed for students wishing to combine their study of Games Computing with a focus on the game technologies of the future. The programme aims to prepare students to contribute to the growing development and interest in extended reality, with a focus on interaction, immersiveness, and entertainment. By combining core computer science and game development skills with an additional focus on extended reality, the course aims to create developers who are equipped to address the increasing demand for extended reality as a platform for game technologies. The course also aims to develop a skillset that is applicable to the wider spectrum of the digital sector. Beyond learning how to develop software, students can also develop an understanding of the interaction between the computer and its user, and how to design an engaging experience.
In the first year, students have the opportunity to study the fundamental areas of computer science and games development. This includes programming fundamentals, maths for computing, and games development. In the second year, there is in-depth study expected in areas of games computing, such as advanced programming, concept development, user experience design, and artificial intelligence, alongside a focus on game development for virtual and augmented reality. As well as completing a games development project in the third year, students can choose from a range of specialist optional modules, including Physics Simulation, Parallel Programming; Autonomous Mobile Robotics; Image Processing; and Cross-Platform Development.
The programme is assessed through a variety of means, including in-class tests, coursework, projects, and examinations. The majority of assessments are coursework-based, reflecting the practical and applied nature of games computing science. The weighting given to each assessment method may vary across each academic year. The University of Lincoln aims to ensure that staff return in-course assessments to students promptly.
