  • Course description
    Our two games courses encourage you to become entrepreneurial in the way you approach the gaming industry - an important skill given the number of independent games, particularly for mobile phones and tablets that are hitting the marketplace. What's more, this dynamic degree duo share their first year of study, which means you can easily transfer to BSc (Hons) Games Programming at the end of your first year if you feel that your skills and passions would be better suited to the other pathway.Our popular Games Technology course focuses on the technical aspects of development for a variety of games systems components. You’ll cover the three main strands of the games development process: level design, games/graphics programming and 3D modelling & animation. Plus you’ll also gain a comprehensive overview of the gaming production pipeline and will look at mobile phone game development.Much of your group and individual work on the course is geared towards the production of a complete game and enthusiasts will also pursue this independently or as part of the placement year. A number of our students were involved in the Kickstarter campaign for Rebourne's Rite of Life game. There are five dedicated games labs on campus - one in the brand new Fusion Building which includes 27 new seminar rooms, three lecture theatres, research space, roof-top terraces and numerous catering facilities,  and a store from which you can take out equipment for your projects, including Oculus headsets, Leap Motion devices, graphics tablets, iPads and Android tablets.91% of our final year students said they have been able to access specialised equipment, facilities, or rooms when they needed to – why not come and meet us and see these for yourself?In order to take advantage of new approaches to learning and teaching, as well as developments in industry to benefit our students we regularly review all of our courses. This course is currently going through this process and we will update this page in April 2017 to give you full information about what we will be offering once the review process has concluded.
