About Computer Games Development at Faculty of Science and Engineering, Manchester Metropolitan University

Manchester has been identified as one of the major games industry hubs outside of London* (*source: 'A Map of the UK', Nesta, 2020). Home to organisations such as Gameopolis, the city is a driving force for the future of the games industry.

With our MSc in Computer Games Development, you'll gain the skills required for an exciting career within this growing industry, both here in Manchester and beyond. You'll learn the core essentials of programming for games and you'll conduct playtesting sessions and user research to ensure that your games are fun, impactful and that they effectively reach their target audience.

You will also complete a masters project. While you'll have plenty of support along the way, it's a solo research project designed to develop confidence, autonomy and self-sufficiency - qualities that can take you far in the workplace.

By the time you complete your masters, you'll not only have the technical knowledge, but you'll also have gained key employability skills such as team working, communication, project management and negotiation skills. With the mentorship of passionate games-focused staff at Manchester Met, you will be able to build a refined and diverse portfolio, to help you work towards securing a job in the games industry.
