Digital Games Development - University of Brighton

Digital games are at the centre of a fast-paced, multi-billion pound industry, and this hands-on course gives you the skills you need to be a part of it. Our Digital Games Development BSc(Hons) covers four main themes: program design and implementation, asset design and creation, web technologies, and product development. This spans digital game theory, managing multimedia projects and developing design ideas, as well as programming complete digital games and delivering them to the marketplace. Industry experts contribute to the ongoing development of the course, advising on structure and helping you develop the skills, knowledge and experience most valued by employers. Our Games Jam, where our students work in teams with industry professionals to design and build games using professional-standard equipment, helps put these skills into practice. You will have the chance to develop your own portfolio of single- and multi-player games using specialist software and facilities including digital media and games studios equipped with the latest technology such as Oculus Rift, mobile eye tracking glasses, and a usability lab for testing software. The option of a placement year is a great opportunity to gain valuable work experience and build a network of contacts.
