Games Programming (with Professional Placement) involves the development of computer games, from initial designs through to technical implementation and release. The course offers a dynamic and comprehensive syllabus that will equip you to enter the games industry with the confidence to succeed. Tutors with industry experience of both games programming and design will guide your studies.

With the extra year for a professional placement students can benift from working in the industry.. After the course, students can apply for work within a range of programming disciplines, from gameplay programmers to graphics and shader developers.
