What will I learn?

The computer games industry has a constant demand for suitably qualified people who have a strong technical grounding in programming at high and low levels and an awareness of graphical techniques. These same skills are also valuable in many other computing-related industries as they allow the production of high-performance and high-quality software in any field.

This course includes the foundations of computing, programming, and more advanced study of techniques for programming and producing software that can output high quality three-dimensional graphics in real time.

The programme aims to provide a structured, flexible and coherent programme of study in Computer Games and Animation, which will enable students to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to pursue careers in related areas. It enable students to develop an understanding of the theoretical and practical issues of computing particularly allowing them to create games and animation software through the application of domain specific techniques and methodologies such as multi-threaded event loops and professional game engines.
