This honours degree aims to provide students with comprehensive knowledge and skill in developing software and the opportunity to gain expertise in the development of computer games.
As well as giving learners the strong computing foundation needed to build a game, there will also be a significant focus on the creative aspects of games' design and development. The emphasis in the first three years is on providing a solid foundation in fundamental computing knowledge and skills and in the technical and creative aspects of games development. Students will produce numerous portfolio pieces during the four-year programme, with a large project integrating content across multiple modules delivered in the second semester of each year. The final year offers specialist options and a team project that involves the development of a substantial computer game.
