In second year we get to do robots and Arduino. You get to make phone games, HTML games, 3D games and DirectX games. You get a lot of general knowledge and you make your own portfolio.” Cosmin Stanescu (graduated 2015) “When I was younger, I was limited to what game I was playing, but now I can actually make any game that I want to make. Doing this course has really opened up my mind and my creative side.” Jamie Hamilton (graduated 2012)
