Join our MSc Computer Games Technology and gain a globally reputable qualification which will make you highly desirable to employers. Our graduates have gone on to work with the world’s most recognisable games companies, including Ubisoft, Sony, EA and Rockstar North. Others have set up successful games companies of their own.

It’s an ideal route if you wish to expand and focus your existing programming skills for the development of computer games. Designed and maintained in close association with games companies, the MSc Computer Games Technology course will provide you with access to a range of state-of-the-art facilities.
