Computer Games Technology

Our BSc Computer Games Technology course allows you to apply your technical skills and creativity within the growing computer games industry and beyond. We like slick, first-person shooters but we also like ‘serious games’ – we’re interested in how games technology can be used for rehabilitation and therapy, training and education, as well as how it can inform other creative disciplines such as film and architecture. Founded on the principle of User-Centred Design (UCD), you’ll learn how to consider users throughout every stage of the design and development process. This ethos differs from other design approaches in that you’ll explicitly set out to design outcomes for how users can, want or need to use the games – we don’t force them to change their behaviour to accommodate us.
