University of Hertfordshire has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
The 3D Games Art & Design degree is the study of games art rather than games programming. The degree explores digital modelling of characters and environments, and develops animation as well as shader techniques and level creation. You will be taught to create optimised geometry and textures and apply them to PC game engines, gaining an understanding of the technological restrictions of real-time 3D graphics. The degree examines sound tracks and creating sound effects. You will explore games and gaming trends, looking at scenarios for PCs, consoles and interactive TV.
