As such, it provides a strong grounding in computer game development and interactive media. The emphasis is on providing an all round understanding of gaming and interactive techniques for a variety of platforms and contexts.
Once you have achieved a set of base skills, you will be encouraged to develop your skills in, and understanding of, games design and development.

You will also see a product through from initiation to completion.
Throughout the degree there will be opportunities for you to develop independent thinking, self-management, research and analytical skills, teamwork, and the ability to communicate confidently in a variety of forms appropriate to the games and creative digital media industries.
The aims of the programme are:
