About Computer Science with High-Performance Graphics and Games Engineering, BSc (Hons), MEng (Hons) - at University of Leeds

The multi-billion pound global games industry is one of the most performance-driven areas of computer science. Along with video and console games, the popularity of exciting new immersive games, high-fidelity mobile and eSports are all on the rise - all of which is fuelling the huge growth of this fast-paced sector.

Successful computer graphics programmers push computing resources to the limit using deep understanding of architecture and high-performance programming to generate new levels of graphical realism and visual effects on cutting-edge hardware platforms. Working at the top end of the games industry, they focus on developing computer graphics on high-performance platforms, and writing engines for the next generation of games.

Studying computer science with high-performance graphics and games engineering at Leeds will equip you with the core technical and problem-solving skills to tackle current and emerging challenges. Our High-Performance Graphics and Games Engineering course has been developed in collaboration with industry. You'll gain proficiency in low-level programming (C++, Graphic and Compute shaders), a thorough understanding of multi-core and many-core programming techniques, game engine and tool development techniques, and fundamental insight into graphics and the practical techniques used in games including geometric models, animation and simulation, and advanced methods for visual realism.

As a computer science student, you'll be taught in our brand new, purpose-built hub for students and academics - the Sir William Henry Bragg Building - which is home to world-leading research and specialist teaching facilities and laboratories right here on campus. The Bragg Centre is where scientists and engineers work collaboratively to develop solutions for economical, societal and technical challenges in the UK.

Here at Leeds, we understand the importance this industry has in everyday life, which is why our courses are professionally accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS). The topics you'll study reflect the latest developments in computer science and artificial intelligence, equipping you with the key knowledge, skills and experience you need to begin your career.

On completion of the first three years of the course, if you do not wish to complete the MEng year, you can choose to graduate with a Computer Science BSc.
