The computer games industry continues to grow as more people play games on their consoles, PCs, tablets and smart phones and on social media sites. The BSc Computer Games programmes aim to produce graduates with the right mix of practical skills and technical knowledge to enter this sector, which currently has a high demand for qualified practitioners. The University has excellent studio facilities including HD Video Production Suite, Art Studio, Digital Audio Recording Studio, Game Design Studio featuring 3D Laser Scanning tools, Motion Capture tools and a Rapid Prototyping machine. There is also a User Experience lab where games can be tested and evaluated. Art and Animation will appeal to students who wish to combine their traditional art skills with the latest creative technology in 3D art, animation and motion graphics. The programme is designed for those who want a career as a games artist. It can also lead to opportunities in pre-visualisation for TV and film or in video SFX.
