Games Programming BSc (Hons)



What will I learn?

Love games? Why not make them your life? With thousands of games companies in the UK alone, there is a real demand in the industry for talented, technically able graduates who can turn their creative visions into game realities. This course covers technical programming skills, code optimisation, procedural content development and artificial intelligence. You’ll learn how to design levels, and the mobile development process. High quality games bring together both the technical and creative aspects of games programming and you’ll have plenty of hands-on experience. Through the deconstruction of existing games and Artificial Intelligence principles, you’ll become better placed to understand the markets of the future and how best to impact them. Our project based ‘creative studio’ approach provides a practically focussed approach to your education, through the engagement with authentic assessment activities that reflect industry practises. Many students use their final Major Project as a springboard into industry, creating award-winning projects, establishing their own business or making connections with industry professionals that have led to employment.Put your creative and technical talents to work and be a ‘game-changer’ in the industry!
