BSc in Computing in Games Development
Games development is now a massive multi-million Euro global industry. Xbox, Wii, PlayStation and iPhone Apps are some examples but there are countless other businesses working on games and applications development.
This course uses a software engineering approach to games development, combining study of the technical aspects of games programming, including artiﬁcial intelligence, with the principles of project management, quality assurance and organisational management. While focused on developing games software, we provide a general grounding in software engineering to equip you with the breadth of skills to work in any aspect of the Information Technology industry.
The course includes a work placement in year 3. On graduation, you can progress to the BSc (Hons) in Computing in Software Development.
