Content

The BSc Computer Games Development combines practical development skills with games design.

Throughout the course you will develop your skills in game programming and game engine scripting for multiple platforms. You'll be supported by dedicated games studios and have interaction with animation artists.

This is a practical, career-focused degree that encourages you to publish games and demonstrate your work to employers at our end-of-year Digital Futures event.

Major games studios only employ the most talented and business-aware graduates, which is why we emphasise the need to work on real-world tasks and to create a strong e-portfolio and showreel.

UWS multi-skilled graduates work in various industries including games, animation and social networking.
