Hello sir/madam. I am planning to study Game Design or Animation or Game Development. If I choose Animation I know what I will be doing. What if I choose Game Design or Game Development, what exactly I will be doing programming the game? What is the job opportunity in either of these courses?

Preferred qualification: Postgraduate
Preferred study destination: United Kingdom
Computer Animation Graduates are well positioned to pursue careers in the entertainment industries, such as animation, visual effects in television/film and gaming, as well as careers in industries requiring visual simulation expertise, such as scientific exploration and historical or military case scenario representations.
During your Master's Computer Games Technology degree you will participate in a range of technical and creative activities, whilst having access to a large-scale immersive 3D virtual reality system, games research laboratories, analogue and digital sound studios, a surround sound studio, as well as industry-standard multimedia, video editing and post-production hardware and software.The course will therefore give you the skills required to work in games design, development and project management. You might end up working Gaming firms like Sony.
Prospects are good for both but jobs will purely depend on the Individual's ability to adapt. Universty of Portsmouth offers both programs and I will advise you to look at the website. Wish you all the best.
