About

in the Computing for Games (Hons) programme from Falmouth University, you will master the skills needed to shape the games of the future by studying games through the lens of computer science. Building upon industry-standard software, you’ll implement new tools to extend what is possible with existing engines and program games that push technical boundaries.

Overview

In the Computing for Games (Hons) programme from Falmouth University, you'll collaborate with other students in the Games Academy – from animators through to sound designers – to develop a multi-disciplinary approach with creativity at its heart.
