Over the last decade, the multimedia and entertainment sector, including computer games, has grown to be a multi-billion-dollar global industry employing thousands of computer programmers, designers and multimedia specialists.

Looking at the requirement of the games industry, it is clear that, although traditional programming expertise is still needed, the industry requires a new range of skills that traditional computer science graduates lack. This includes the understanding of user interfaces and user requirements, a knowledge of graphics, animation and virtual reality, and a proficiency in audio and video production techniques.

This Computing with Games Development degree programme from the University of Greenwich helps you to understand the fundamentals of game development and the production of game media elements. You will also develop skills in related technologies, such as animation, virtual reality and audio-visual production techniques. Additionally, you will develop personal and professional skills to help you communicate effectively.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To educate in the theory, technology, practice and application of computing and the development of games
  • To give a coherent and integrated learning experience relevant to the needs of future computing professionals
  • To provide awareness of social, legal, ethical and political implications of games development within a computing environment.
