The degree in Digital Games Development offers learners the extra edge when it comes to the creation of entertainment software. The taught component provides insight on the various stages involved in game design and development. Students will learn to utilize state of the art tools and technologies for implementing digital games. Such artefacts require a variety of skills alongside 3D game engines. These skills include ux/ui design, game level design, software development, software testing, content creation (through audio/visual tools), 3d modelling, networking, game logic, ai, mathematics, physics etc. Additionally, work placements will not only allow learners to understand the roles and responsibilities in an organization. They will work on real-world problems and will understand the importance of decision making, problem-solving, whilst being effective team players. Finally, through the research component, students will explore how to investigate, resolve, and present findings related to a research problem in a given domain. There is also a “double degree route” for those aspiring game developers who would like to extend their studies and work experience abroad and take their existing qualification in Digital Games Development, Multimedia Software Development or Software Development to the next level.
