Computer Games

Ranked among the top Computer Science (and Information Systems) departments on the planet according to the QS World University Rankings (2017), our BSc Computer Games combines core topics, such as graphics and programming, with the latest developments in computer science. At the end of your course, you will be able to create the outline design specification for a computer game of your own design, and to implement a game using industry-standard techniques. The ongoing demand for new and more sophisticated games has led to a growing need for highly skilled graduates who can apply advanced knowledge of areas such as software design techniques, artificial intelligence, networking and internet technology to implement the games of the future. This degree is accredited by both the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the British Computer Society (BCS). These accreditations are increasingly sought by employers, and provide the first stage towards eventual professional registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).
