Overview of the programme

Computer game development remains one of the fastest growing industries in the digital technology sector, and as such, there is an increasing demand for technical specialists, managers and consultants.

 

The course is designed to take technical development, management and entrepreneurial skills to a level required to access higher technical and managerial positions within studios, along with the necessary skills to create and maintain viable games/media businesses.

 

Building on the strong foundation of our successful Game Development programme, this course enjoys the benefits of close industry links with regular visits and guest speakers as part of an integrated programme of presentations, discussion groups and social events.

 

We have an excellent track record for graduate employment with many of our students going on to work at some of the UK's most recognisable game studios.

 

A key element of the course is its emphasis on blending advanced technical development with strong management and sustainable business skills. Through our unique Business Accelerator initiative, we deliver industry standard theory and practice allowing students to gain valuable experience of the business planning and finance along with the management of a game studio.
