Why study Games Development with us?
Here at the University of Chester we have a wide range of resources to allow you to work with leading-edge development environments, and to build your skills in the design and creation of applications for current platforms. During our Games Development course, we will provide you with your own copies of a range of fully licensed design and development software. You will also be given a development licence to test games on mobile devices and distribute games online.
The programme covers a broad range of modules covering principles of games theory, 2D and 3D design, programming and development, together with the essential project and organisational skills which will enable you to hit the ground running once you graduate. You will learn how to plan and design, as well as cover the underlying concepts required to build our next generation of computer games. As an undergraduate, you will also be given the opportunity to specialise in a specific area of games development via one of our unique team working initiatives, which gives students across all levels the opportunity to work collaboratively on real industry-focused projects.
What will I learn?
You will begin by learning the fundamentals in game design, technical requirements and standards to make use of leading-edge development tools in the areas of storyboarding and production techniques, programming models, artificial intelligence (AI), game theory, texture and object design, programming, designing immersive environments, multimedia and cinematography for games.
You will then be expected to develop your understanding across key areas of games development whilst enhancing your project management and employability skills through personal portfolio development and integrated work-experience during your second year. As you reach your final year you will have established a keen interest in one or more areas of games development towards a specialism, which you will be encouraged to develop further as part of your academic assessments. Throughout the programme, you will be exposed to numerous development environments and ultimately have the opportunity to focus on a specific platform as part of your final-year dissertation.
