With over 2,100 games companies in the UK alone, there is a real demand in the industry for talented, technically able graduates who can turn their creative visions into game realities. Put your creative and technical talents to work and be a game-changer in the industry! You’ll learn 2 programming languages (C++ and C#) and then go on to develop your technical expertise in programming, problem solving skills within the context of applying game design theory and mechanics, as well as learning two of the most used Game Engines: Unity and Unreal. In addition, this course also covers how to develop multiplayer games and mobile app games, graphics programming with OpenGL, shader programming and how to create VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality) games.
