Game developers design and create video games for computers and mobile devices. 


If you wish to specialise in this subject area then you should consider the following programme(s):

Students will develop a portfolio of playable games and game prototypes using high–level game development tools such as Unity and Unreal. In addition they will develop proficiency in high–performance game development using industry–standard languages such as C++, C# and Javascript.

Genres of games which students will develop include 2D side–scrolling platformers, first–person shooters and survival games in 2D/3D. Students will develop skills to enable them to create games ranging in technical complexity from indie and casual games up to AAA high–end commercial games.
