Software Development for Animation, Games and Effects BSc (Hons)

Our Software Development for Animation, Games & Effects degree is very different from its run of the mill computer science rivals, as it sets out to fully and unapologetically immerse you in the exciting fields of computer graphics and production processes. Working on cross-disciplinary collaborations with other artists and technical directors, you'll gain invaluable hands-on-experience that won't only help you develop the techniques and skills needed to excel in your discipline, but will also teach you to better appreciate and work effectively in other aspects of the production pipeline.

What's more you'll build on a solid base of mathematics and computer science theory, as well as applying software development techniques to a wide range of topics, such as modelling, rendering and natural phenomena simulation, ultimately enriching you with the theory, practical skillset and experience needed to succeed in this industry.
