Games Design

Our newly developed BSc (Hons) Games Design degree focuses on the design aspect of creating contemporary video games; exploring everything from the theory behind the creation of successful digital entertainment titles to the generation of dedicated art and content for them. The course covers level design, interactive storytelling, narrative development, interface design, games analytics, scripting for game creation plus 3D modelling and texturing for games. What’s more if you’re seeking a technical challenge, you can choose a programming component to your curriculum instead. To complement the skills and knowledge acquired on the course, those undertaking the four-year course have the opportunity to complete at least 30 weeks in an industry work placement – designed to give you a competitive edge when seeking employment. We have regular contact with games developers across the UK and overseas, including Jagex, Lionhead, Marmalade, Goodgame Studios and Climax Studios. Students in the Department of Creative Technology are on placement in Luxembourg, Holland, Denmark, Bulgaria and Italy. Graduates can expect to move into industries including multimedia, technology, digital and entertainment to name a few. Typical starting job roles you can then expect to move into includes as a Games Programmer, Games Developer, Media Designer and more.
