Our BSc Computer Games Technology course allows you to apply your technical skills and creativity within the growing computer games industry and beyond.
We like slick, first-person shooters but we also like ‘serious games’ – we’re interested in how games technology can be used for rehabilitation and therapy, training and education, as well as how it can inform other creative disciplines such as film and architecture.
Founded on the principle of User-Centred Design (UCD), you’ll learn how to consider users throughout every stage of the design and development process.
This ethos differs from other design approaches in that you’ll explicitly set out to design outcomes for how users can, want or need to use the games – we don’t force them to change their behaviour to accommodate us.
Our Computer Games Technology course sits alongside the established and highly regarded BA Computer Games Arts course – this provides you with extra opportunities to collaborate with your peers on Computer Games Arts through linked projects that mirror industry team development.
The computer games industry requires individuals with a high level of practical skills, technical knowledge and experience, and our BSc Computer Games Technology course creates graduates who go above and beyond.
Career routes are plentiful in the computer games industry, which is growing at a record pace – with London and the South East hosting 48% of the UK gaming industry, our Farnham campus is ideally located at the centre of this exciting industry.
This course has changed title for 2019 entry to BSc (Hons) Games Technology.
