Course summary

Do you want to have a successful career in the computer games industry? Our TIGA-accredited Computer Games Technology course has been developed with input and feedback from leading professionals working in the sector as well as our own students. While studying for your degree, you will use our state-of-the-art computer games technology lab, which is kitted out with high-performance PCs, Xbox consumer units, Nintendo Switch Development Kits, Rokoko Motion Capture suits and Sony PlayStation development kits, as well as industry-standard software. You will develop a range of technical and professional skills, including advanced coding practices, graphics programming, game engine development and artificial intelligence. Our current collaborations with Microsoft, Sony and Unreal (Academic Partner) ensure you have access to the most up-to-date technologies available, and our close proximity to independent game studios provides the opportunity for you to meet and network with industry experts. You will not only learn about mainstream and traditional video game development, but also explore allied and emerging disciplines, such as serious and educational game development, augmented and virtual reality, and simulations. You will also have the opportunity to participate in game development competitions, such as Global Game Jam and Microsoft’s Imagine Cup, giving you the chance to show your talent on an international stage. Foundation Year The foundation year is designed to give you the opportunity to develop your academic and interpersonal skills while developing your subject knowledge further to support you to success on your academic path. By studying a foundation year, your first year will be spent learning a wide range of broad subject areas which then open up opportunities for you to specialise further in your next year – which would be the first year of a full degree programme.
