About Games Computing at University of Lincoln

The MComp is a four-year degree programme which enhances and extends the equivalent BSc (Hons) programme. It provides the opportunity to study a range of modules at Master's level and to complete a substantive project in an area of specific personal interest. Studying at Master's level enables you to both deepen and broaden your knowledge and understanding. This can provide you with a stronger CV and may give you a distinct edge in the job market.

The MComp Games Computing degree at Lincoln aims to equip graduates with the skills necessary for a technical career within the creative games and entertainment industry, including mobile, social media and console game development.

The strong conceptual and methodological grounding in both games design and games development makes Lincoln's Games Computing course distinctive. Students are encouraged to recognise that software engineering is as important as creative design in the success of computer game products, and to explore the role of games as contemporary cultural artefacts. On the course, you can develop software that targets desktop, mobile and console platforms.
