Updates may be made on an annual basis and revised details will be published through Programme Specifications ahead of each academic year. If we have insufficient numbers of students interested in an optional module, this may not be offered. The goal of the module is to further develop skills in organisation, timekeeping, research literature, developing and critically analysing results as well as reporting work verbally and in a written format. The end result will be an artefact or artefacts which demonstrate creativity and technical competence as well as a technical report. It is a key element in providing an extended period in industry gaining real world employability skills.

From games programming, graphics and artificial intelligence to games hardware and procedural generation, this challenging degree equips you with the confidence and skills you need to pursue a career in the multi-billion pound games industry. Not only did it enrich my knowledge, making me more proficient in what I do now, but it also gave me the push I needed to get the job I desired. I would have not been able to work for the University of Oxford for 7 months, at the end of which we published a game (The Vaccination Game on itch.io) if it wasn’t for the connections Goldsmiths and its lecturers have.

What Goes Into Making A Computer Game?
Tutorials and laboratory-based activities increase your understanding of the subject, allowing you to put the taught theory into practice, and develop your competence and confidence in technological and theoretical work. Introduction to the necessary components to develop a 3D physics-based game application considering the console hardware. The identification of the vulnerabilities of these systems threats that might exploit these vulnerabilities.
Computer graphics is a sub-field of computer science which studies methods for digitally synthesising and manipulating visual content. Although the term often refers to the study of three-dimensional computer graphics, it also encompasses two-dimensional graphics and image processing. Plugin tools designed to facilitate export from art creation tools and their import into middleware. Often bespoke solutions are required and programmers have to create their own tools from scratch , this module introduces the premises that are required for most games. As modern game development moves toward creating richer, more detailed worlds than ever before, so do the demands on the systems for managing and processing the vast quantities of digital resources used in these worlds.
