University of Brighton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Our Computer Science for Games BSc(Hons) has been developed in consultation with industry leaders, keeping your learning at the forefront of technological advances and providing the technical skills needed to launch your career in the multi-billion pound games industry. You will develop expertise in three core elements: the engine that drives the dynamics of the game, the application interface and the design of the user experience. Exploring topics from databases and programming to 3D graphics and animation, you will gain a sound understanding of the software technologies underlying the games development process. You’ll also develop transferable computing skills in software development, data analysis and system modelling, learn how to work independently and as part of a team, and develop your presentation and communication skills. Our annual video games conference provides networking opportunities, and the optional salaried placement year allows you to gain valuable professional experience. You’ll have access to specialist facilities including digital media and games studios equipped with the latest technology such as Oculus Rift, mobile eye-tracking glasses, and a usability lab for testing software.
