Course Summary:
Computer Science for Games is a well-established industry inspired programme which gives you all the benefits of Computer Science, with specific experience of how it applies to the design and creation of computer games. This course shares a common first year with all our other Computer Science programmes, allowing you to transfer between them before the start of the second year if you feel an alternative course suits you better. Computer Science for Games will give you a strong foundation within mainstream computing topics, enriched and enhanced with specific subjects focussing on games technologies, approaches for design, content creation and AI. The course aims to produce graduates that are ready to enter the job market with a strong skillset and an understanding of how game development teams work together effectively.
Modules:
All of our Computing courses share a common first year, allowing transfer between them before the start of the second year. Our first year modules cover foundation topics including introductory computer programming, internet technologies, professional skills and more. The second year also includes many modules common to all of our courses, further strengthening core and fundamental knowledge required by all Computing graduates. The second year also introduces course specific modules and our flagship Enterprise Pro module which embeds industry projects within your course, giving you significant real world experience of designing and developing a solution to an industry proposed problem, within a supervised and academically supported team. Our final year is where you will further develop your computing and business skills allowing you to launch your career. The course includes a final year project as well as further specialist content and the opportunity to take an elective module to really personalise your degree. Year 1: Computer Architecture and Systems Software (core) Fundamentals of Programming (core) Internet Technologies (core) Mathematics for Computing (core) Software Design & Development (core) Technical and Professional Skills (core) Year 2: Computer Communications and Networks (core) Data Structures and Algorithms (core) Database Systems (core) Enterprise Pro (core) Game Design Programming and Development (core) Computational Modelling and Artificial Intelligence (option) Indie Games: Concept, Design and Development (option) Year 3: Placement year Year 4 AI for Games (core) Final Year Project (core) Numerical Methods and Computer Graphics (core) Concurrent and Distributed Systems (option) Mobile Applications (option) Motion Capture (option) Neural Networks & Fuzzy Systems (option)
Assessment Methods:
Most modules use a mixture of formal lectures, practical lab sessions, tutorials and seminars. Some modules involve supervised group work, usually with an assigned academic staff member for each group. All modules require students to undertake independent study, supported through distance learning technologies such as our Virtual Learning Environment. Reading lists and suggested resources for independent study provide further direction for students to undertake this work, and regular contact hours and informal feedback throughout the courses provide opportunities for further guidance for learners. Assessments for modules mostly take the form of practical coursework, lab tests and written exams, with all forms being well represented throughout all years of the course across all modules

The societies are really welcoming! The campus is compact and really fun! As for the city, new student pubs are sprouting up everywhere and there's loads of great films to see at the BIFF every year,. It may not be the most glam city in the country, but there’s plenty to see and do in Bradford and it’s great for students.

    I have found that being at a slightly smaller university means that I receive a better learning experience. I know all of my lecturers on a first name basis, and most of them know me. It is easy to be involved, both with the course and with sports and societies and I feel like the university has prepared me well for getting a good job in my field.
