In Years 1, 2 and 3 students in all programmes take part in an Integrated Project, an opportunity for students from the different disciplines to make games together. You’ll also enjoy guest lectures by industry experts.
Computer Games Software Development concentrates on technical programming requirements, including the mathematics and implementation of physical mechanics. Your studies will include the creation of 2D and 3D graphics, the use of 3D animation in games, the creation of ‘thinking’ creatures, new product development and professional issues involved in the development of software and the core elements of Game Design.
