Computer Games Programming (Virtual Reality) (with a foundation year)

Learn the graphics, mathematics, physics, data representation and simulation concepts that will make you stand out as a VR specialist in the games industry. This course will prepare you for employment as a software developer in the specialised field of virtual and augmented reality, as well as in the general games and computing industry. You’ll develop games from an initial concept to a finished product. Our industry links provide the opportunity for you to pitch these games to commercial studios, including Matmi, Team 17 and Media Molecule. You’ll also have the chance to spend a placement year creating vehicle displays, visualising scientific data, developing immersive systems, or working in our very own commercial games studio. Our staff have published papers on topics such as image and video processing, speech processing, pattern recognition, and computer graphics and animation.
