Course Details

In this Games Programming (Hons) course from the University of Northampton you will focus on the programming and development of computer games starting from the foundation principles of computer games programming. In this course we insist also on the principle of “theory put into practice” and with the assistance of our bright new, state-of-the-art equipped, computer labs you will have every opportunity to experience this principle materialising, gaining both the theoretical knowledge and the practical skills you need to develop first-rate computer games. You will have an opportunity to fully explore other key computer games elements like development of ideas, planning, problem-solving and the economics of creating a complete computer game ready to be launched in the market.

You will study core modules, which cover concepts and skills from fundamental to advance, including: Computer Systems, Problem Solving & Programming, Computer Games Programming, Programming for “Unity3D” Game Engine (fundamental to advance), Programming for “Unreal 4” Game Engine (fundamental to advance), Computer Graphics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) Techniques, Simulation & Dynamics, Internet Technology and Computer Games Techniques.

You will also gain an in-depth understanding of Computer Science in general, this being the field of science that underpins computer software development in the entirety of its spectrum. The advantage of this is that after graduation you will be fully prepared and equipped with all the crucial knowledge required to succeed as a computer programmer of any other kind as well.

In the second year there are two group projects where you will work to produce an innovative solution to a real world problem and in your final year you will complete an individual research dissertation.
