Games Software Engineering

Taught by professional practitioners, expert academics and interesting guest lecturers, in dedicated facilities with cutting-edge equipment, this degree will provide you with a clear understanding of how to apply programming techniques to modern games creation, whilst developing your knowledge of artificial intelligence, physics, game engines and graphics programming. You’ll have the opportunity to take a 30-week work placement in the industry, allowing you to put the specialist knowledge and skills you learn on the course into a real work context, so you leave with a degree and that all-important work experience. You can also build a network of professional contacts before you enter the job market. 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. 90% of our students who study computer games and animation courses say staff are good at explaining things (NSS, 2018).
