Computer Games Development

Are you a keen programmer who wants to learn about games development in general, as well as technical games programming skills? This course is suited to those who aspire to work in an indie games studio or develop mobile games, and is also good preparation for a career as a software developer in the wider computing industry. As members of the PlayStation® First Academic Program run by Sony, we have access to professional development hardware and software tools. Using industry standard games engines such as UDK and Unity, you’ll gain experience in developing games from an initial concept to finished product. You will then pitch your games to commercial studios such as Playground Games, Team 17 and Media Molecule. As a graduate of this course you will be well equipped to work in the games industry as a gameplay programmer or indie developer. You will also have the skills to work in the wider computing industry as a software developer. Many graduates from the Games Programming Scheme are currently working in companies such as Activision, Rockstar, Traveller’s Tales, Codemasters and others.
