Computer Games Technology

Our BSc Computer Games Technology has been devised with input from leading professionals to develop the skills you need to be successful in the games industry and beyond. You will learn a range of technical and professional skills, including understanding fundamentals and advanced ‘coding’ practices, graphics programming, network communications and artificial intelligence. The course is intended not only to expose you to mainstream and traditional game development, but also to working in allied and emerging disciplines such as serious and educational game development, augmented and virtual reality and simulations. Located at our City Centre Campus in the heart of Birmingham, we are close to many independent game studios. We also participate in international game development competitions such as Global Game Jam and Microsoft’s Imagine Cup, which give you the opportunity to showcase your talent on a wider stage. You will work in state-of-the-art computing facilities, including a dedicated computer games development lab. This houses high specification game development PCs, Sony PlayStation Dev Kits and a range of industry standard software. In 2017, we are spending £8.7 million on improvements to our facilities so you’ll have even more access to dedicated, industry-standard equipment.
