Our Computer Science for Games BSc(Hons), created and updated in collaboration with industry leaders, will prepare you for a career in the multibillion-pound games industry. You’ll study three core elements of computer games: 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’ll understand the software technologies that support the games development process. You’ll also gain skills in software development, data analysis and system modelling. Project work, game jams and placements put learning into practice and let you show potential employers what you are capable of. And our annual games conference is another way to meet people working in the industry. This course is accredited by BCS - The Chartered Institute for IT.
